From a young age, I’ve always had an acute understanding of mortality – that life could be snatched away at any moment. This oversized childhood fear was birthed from my family’s reality. By the time I was 13, my family would bury my grandfather, lose my vibrant 40-something-year-old aunt to cancer, and see my uncle pass away followed two years later by his son (my first cousin) – both as a result of commercial fishing accidents.
