I remember sitting in a room in prison one day, lost, alone and beaten, on the phone talking to Ian. He gave me something during that 10-minute call that had been taken from me over years… he gave me the gift of hope… gratitude. Ian was also one of the first people I met when I came into rehab for my severe drug addiction (which is why I was in prison in the first place) and he never judged me, something I was not used to…. faith.
From that point on he has always been a silent companion on this journey, who I know would come through for me should I need direction or support.
In Ian just being himself I was able to find inspiration to just be me… courage. Thank you Ian, for being a key component in my recovery, which has now saved my life… unity. God bless you Ian Young –
