Kelly, as we all know, loves people. She loves to connect. She loves to have a good laugh. She loves the simple things life has to offer and treasures the relationships she has built over the years. She is currently going through the hardest time one could ever imagine. For now, she has expressed the desires to not receive anything material, no gift and no meal. The biggest balm to her heart right now is all the messages of love that she has been receiving.
One of Kelly's biggest life accomplishment and pride is her daughter Maïka. As the next few weeks unfold, we would like to give Kelly the opportunity to continue to be present for her, in the future, for a special moment of her choosing or a special project. Kelly will not have the joy to celebrate with Maïka important milestones of her young life. In all humbleness, we have decided to start this fund to allow her to continue to be there for her for whatever she will choose, whether it will be to start an RESP (Registered Education Saving Plan), save up for her wedding day or her first down payment on a house, etc.
No one would ever wish for days like this to happen. They are utterly heartbreaking. But as wise Gandalf would say, ‘’so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us’’. I take heart in having faith that there will be a day, with no more tears, no more pain. As we wait for this day to come, let’s gather all our love towards Kelly and her family and use our time wisely to make sure she is beyond showered with it.
