Gammy

June 25, 2021

My best friends Granma died earlier this week. Likely from complications due to a stroke.

RIP Gammy.. You are already missed.

I’ve actually know Gammy for a long time. Cath’s Mom passed early so Gammy was her mother figure in her life.

For a while, Gammy actually rented the basement apartment in Cath’s townhouse. So, since I was there several times a week, I got to know her fairly well.

She was happy friendly woman. She loved her granddaughters & great grandchildren & a great great Grandson.. It was very obvious to anyone.

Gammy was just shy of her 90th birthday and had a long life. Having had three husbands, Gammy was a survivor.

She will live on in our thoughts, our prayers & our memories.

RIP Gammy.You are already missed.

Happy 50th, Laura.

Today, Laura would have been 50 years old.

For those who don’t know the backstory, I’ve always called Laura my sister. Technically, she was my sister-in-law but I have known her since I was 12 or 13. We were also friends in our own right through soccer & field hockey.

Laura was a Toronto police officer recently returned from maternity leave. While responding to an emergency burglary call for an elderly woman, her vehicle was hit by a civilian. Her police cruiser spun, throwing her partner from the vehicle but wrapping her around a tree. The civilian was never charged with anything, not even failing to yield to the emergency vehicle.

Laura with Paige, only hours old.

A new mother, a caring sister, a supportive daughter, a good friend, a loving wife and a great police officer, her life was tragically cut short and we miss her. .

Rest In Peace
