Dear Jen and Max,
So much has happened since you found your peace. Your great grandma passed away but you already know that because you are all eating cottage cheese perogies and potato pancakes and watching over all of us.
Jen your Abby is amazing and has grown into one of the kindest, gentlest young ladies I have ever met. She graduates high school next year. Your brothers are all doing well! Blair runs his very own hockey school. I know - surprise surprise, right? He is married to his best friend. Yes, you guessed it, him and Mandy got married! Brody is going to save all of us one day. He is in the military and training to be a sharp shooter.
Max; Zach grew up and moved to Calgary for a while. He did great on his own and we are all very proud of him. He is home now, continuing his education and waiting to begin his next big adventure. Your little sister is not so little any more! She's actually quite tall and has grown into a beautiful young lady! She graduated grade twelve this year and is also continuing her education.
Your moms, dads and grandparents are all
doing well and make it through each day with grace and extra special compassion for others that has been gained by
Your cousin Jerred married his best friend Jessica and together gave your aunt two grandbabies who have me wrapped around their tiny fingers and melt my heart on a daily basis. Your cousin Shae broke his mama's heart and moved to Alberta where he is thriving and his mama is very proud of him!
So you see my two angels that life has gone on for your big beautiful family full of aunts, uncles, cousins - I believe at last count there were over 100 of us! It has not been easy. When we hear a song that reminds us of you or think of where you might be today, the waves of grief return but we can now remember the incredible humans you were and smile because whether you were here or not, you have left an indelible mark on our hearts.
The charity I am supporting is Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation.
Charities need us more than ever and that is why I’ve signed up for the first-ever global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to raise much-needed funds for youth charities around the world.
Did you know that in Saskatchewan, there are over 25,000 children with diagnosed mental health issues? Even before the COVID crisis, pediatric resources for mental health were stretched. Life-threatening conditions, complex care needs, severe mental health issues, and geographic challenges affecting access to care haven't stopped during this pandemic. If anything, there is a greater sense of urgency.
I need your help to ensure Saskatchewan kids and families have access to the best mental health care possible. It's going to take everyone in our community pulling together. It's all about the health of the next generation. We truly are stronger together.
Thank you from me and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
