Kelly-Anne's Birthday Party
November 28th brought about many mixed emotions. It would have been Kelly-Anne's 29th birthday. Over 80 people gathered to remember Kelly-Anne at the Dollard des Ormeaux Aquatic Centre. We snacked on great hor oeuvres from Le Tambour passed around by inspiring young lifeguards. Awards were given to the lifeguards who were involved in competitions throughout the year. Over $ 6, 500.00 was raised. This money will go towards training, equipment and travel for the athletics.
Kelly-Anne was remembered by a beautiful video and a slide show created by her friends Caroline and Martin.I can see that Kelly-Anne's spirit continues to inspire many of her friends.
I am sure that Kelly-Anne thinks that it is " interesting" ( she loved that word) to know that she still even in her death continues have birthday parties.
My dear cousin Barbara goes out of her way to collect gift donations for the occasion while Kim and I sold many of our Christmas Balls.
The ambiance, wine and company left me with a warm heart. Many thanks to Martin, Antoine D and Antoine O for being the kind spirited young men who worked earnestly together to make the evening special.
