Kinoy and Joanne have been overwhelmed by the support of family and friends during this difficult and sad time. The outpouring of kindness shown through cards, food, emails and visits has been heartwarming. Kinoy is thankful for the love being shared with him and his family.
For many people, as time passes, they will eventually digest the sorrow that life has offered. Sadly, for Joanne, Ava and Jalen, the impact will last a lifetime. As you would guess, the future of his kids is one of Kinoy’s greatest pains and greatest fears. All of our food and visiting is wonderful, but let’s do what we can to support the family, and show Kinoy, Joanne, Ava and Jalen that we love them.
With that in mind, a Trust is being created to help enhance the lives of Ava and Jalen. The intent of this Trust is to provide financial support for Ava’s and Jalen’s well-being and to enrich their lives (not to fund normal living expenses). These are some examples of possible uses of the fund:
· Education – university tuition, computer, school activities
· Sporting activities – fees, equipment
· Extra-curricular activities – summer camp, lessons
The Trust will be managed by Joanne and two of her siblings. Tax and legal professionals have volunteered their time, which means the Trust will have no administration costs.
How ever you choose to support Kinoy, Joanne, Ava and Jalen, thank-you.
With much love and gratitude,
The siblings of Joanne & Kinoy:
Chilla & Nang Narda & Don
Jimmy & Ping Nancy & Andrew
