Kate and Ken Stannix

Easter Sunday 2007 was one of Canada's bloodiest days in Afghanistan.
Six Canadian soldiers were killed when the light armoured vehicle they were in hit a roadside bomb, about 75 kilometers west of Kandahar City.
One of them was Master Corporal Christopher Stannix, 24 years old, a reservist with the Princess Louise Fusiliers in Halifax.
His mother Kate is the Silver Cross Mother in McAdam, New Brunswick during Remembrance Day Ceremonies this year.
His father Ken has rarely talked to the media about their loss.
They both spoke at length to the CBC's Myfanwy Davies recently, about their son and how they've coped with the tragedy of his death.
