A Season Of Loss

from CTV,
A new book, entitled A Season of Loss, A Lifetime of Forgiveness by John Manasoo looks at the crash and its aftermath and finds that the Snyders looked to their Mennonite beliefs to not only cope with the death of their son, but to also reach out to Heatley. "I grew up in the Mennonite Chuch...I struggle with the word religion sometimes," Dan's father Graham Snyder told Canada AM. "I'm not a church-going person for the most part, but a lot of the values that I learned came from there, and as John (Manasoo) talks about in the book a little bit, some of the main tenets of that faith are forgiveness and passivism...I just believe that it felt like something that we've always strongly believed in, is treating others as you would like to be treated, and so I think we used that as a basis for how we reacted."
