Former wife of Dorian Buze Brenda refused to be interviewed for telling PostMedia about his life and death. However, she wanted to thank everyone in Edmonton who tried to help Dorian. This is her statement:
November 22, 2016, life has changed forever. We experienced the loss of one of the most beautiful people we have ever blessed to know and share our lives.
Since then, there really have been no words about grief. I lost others I loved very much in this life, but I’m not upset about how I suffer from the loss of Dorian Bouze, the father of our two sons (Brady and Taylor) and a great love of my life. But there is paradise, and one day I will see it again. The word of God promises this to us.
For those who read this, please know that he brought us great joy, a lot of love and laughter, that we will always love in the memory of our hearts and minds. In such a story you do not often hear the beauty of a lost person. There was a lot of beauty, and I need it to be known.
As we lost Dorian, we increasingly learned about his life and those who came near him to help support and "save" him. I can imagine some of you who may be reading this precious time invested in him, because you also saw the beauty of your soul and knew that everything about his spirit was worth saving.
For all of you, I sincerely thank you. Most of my gratitude for those who tried to help was what he showed our sons that their father was worthy of all your efforts, and that meant something to them. I can't thank you for that.
For Randy Spencer, you were our connection to all things in the early hours and days of the passage of Dorian. Thank you for answering all my questions and every phone call I made. You answered higher and higher each time.
To Cpl. Bourque of Edmonton RCMP, who found Dorian in the streets for me after a single request by phone and gave him a message of love and care from his family and reminding him that his loving God had not forgotten him. Please listen to my heart when I say that we thank you for contacting him and telling him about your sons. I am deeply grateful to you for this.
The desire and prayer of our hearts is that if the story of Dorian in any way can affect the awareness and change how we see these stories of those who fall between the cracks, we would be grateful. And I believe that he would be grateful for this opportunity.
May his death never be in vain, but part of the agent of change, which makes life different.
– Brenda Buze
