My heart is shattered into about a million pieces as I try to process the death of Steve Makins, a person who had such a profound impact on my life, and played a big part in who I am today. This has been a terribly difficult week and the grief we all share in losing him is overwhelming.
I was at Sunnybrook every other day since the accident, just sitting out front sending every positive vibe that I had in his direction. That’s where I was last night, sending him messages about how I couldn’t believe the Ornge helicopter didn’t wake him up as it took off from the top of the hospital and willing him to come on back to this side, when I started seeing others posting messages of his passing, and it broke me into pieces.This is not how this story was supposed to play out. He was supposed to wake up and see all of our messages, songs and support.Steve loved life, and didn’t believe in wasting time on negativity. He never did anything halfway. He was kind to everyone, always looked for the silver linings, and radiated positivity even in the worst of times. There is nobody like Steve, he was larger than life. Being around him made me feel like I had superpowers.When he was processing the death of his brother, Adam, I spent a fair bit of time talking with him, encouraging him to write, and that’s exactly what he did. He developed such a way with words that he lifted himself and others right back up again, with only a few sentences.Steve was a testament to his upbringing. He cared about people, and took care of people. When I stopped in to visit, he’d pull a lawn chair out, sweep it off and put a blanket or jacket over top so I had somewhere clean and comfortable to sit; he’d turn on the heater if it was too cold for me (I didn’t even have to ask); and did all the little things to make sure I was comfortable. When we were out driving aimlessly and talking one rainy day back in the spring, I had to stop for gas and he immediately offered to get out and pump it so I could stay dry, warm and comfortable inside the car. He was positive, thoughtful, kind, caring, helpful, and family was the center of his world.You have to know that he didn’t want to put anyone through this grief, that the motorcycle was his way of lifting himself up from a hard place, and living life to its fullest as he always did. I chose this picture for this post because it really captures the good place he was moving into, and the bike was part of that. When he got his licence, he swore he’d be careful and told me pointedly he didn’t want to ‘put his mother through the loss of another son’. He would be devastated to know that this was the outcome, as it is definitely not what he wanted. He just wanted to be happy, he was really loving the few months he got to ride his bike, it gave him a new lease on life. In a world where so many things can end it all, his happiness is what he would want us to remember about it. When I spoke to him about coming down to the city to visit, I stressed several times that he shouldn’t take the highway, and I believe he was taking Young Street back home from Vaughan because he listened to me. No matter what the police come back with in their report, or what other people think, I KNOW in my heart of hearts that he was being careful.My thoughts go out to the Makins / Stubbings family, as they process yet another loss, and navigate a grief more profound than words could ever describe.The memories Steve and I shared will be forever engraved in my heart. He meant so much to me, and I hope he knew that.
There isn’t a soul who knew him that will not be forever changed, and we will all do our very best focus on the time we were blessed to have him in our lives and keep looking at the bright side, because that’s exactly what he would want us to do.
