This has been a very sad week for our family. Earlier this week, my mother-in-law passed away peacefully. She was both a complicated and simple person, and she lived for her family. Her greatest joy was holding a baby on her lap. She will be missed by her children, her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. I imagine her now reunited with her beloved mother and brother. Rest in peace, Nora.
Within 12 hours of his grandmother’s death, our nephew Ryan Mitchell was involved in a bad traffic accident, which left him with a crushed knee, broken bones, bruises and burns. While not life-threatening he will take time to heal. We wish him a speedy recovery, and hope he can be back home soon.
