Bloom, David Samuel

David Samuel Bloom, you loved life.

Even after you were diagnosed, you continued to astound others with your unwillingness to give up. You were an incredible performer before you became ill and you performed your best role as someone who wasn't. A part of us died on that inexplicable evening. Words cannot describe the thoughts and feelings that passed through us as we held your hands and let you go. You left behind a legacy, a persona, and your dynamic personality inspired family and friends in Brampton to organize the David Bloom Memorial Spring Sprint. We will never forget your want and need to help others. Others will survive because of you. "Think of him as living in the hearts of those he touches... For nothing loved is ever lost. And he was loved so much."
