Jeannie de Vries, Michele Pineault and Lorelei Williams all suffered the grief of losing family members whose remains were later found on the Picton family farm in Port Coquitlam, BC. Each speak to the experience of having a family member go missing, and to later learn of their murder. Loss of mother, daughter, auntie, and other family members are reflected upon. Mentioned is the “grief that never goes away’”, and raising children of those murdered. To spread awareness about violence to aboriginal girls and women is a goal of the three interviewees.
