We were over thirty strong wearing our special Tony t-shirt and walking in memory of our Tony. The sun was out and the sky was blue... it was perfect. I must admit that I was a bit relunctant to see so many people... gathered in memory of Tony. These days, when I don't feel strong, or feel I can't even fake a smile, I usually retreat to my home and stay away from people. I'm really glad I didn't on Sunday. Although I wasn't quite myself; and I probably won't be for a while, I was there and I did it - "one step at a time".
Thanks to the whole Enbridge team and their families for participating. A special thanks to Denis, Todd and Mario... "Richard" would have been extremely touched by all the attention and effort you put into the event. You're a great team and "Richard" always enjoyed going to work... I can see why!
Michele, my sister-in-law, told me that the memorial service in Belfast went very well and that many people attended. Although the boys and I could not be there, I did wake up at 6 a.m. and looked at my alarm clock and thought of you all. I was touched when Michele told me that there were over 150 people in attendance. Thank you...
The boys are doing well. We were back at the hospital for Richard's wrist this morning. I was thankful that they did not need to reset it. We have to go back next week for a follow-up. And, this evening, Mathieu played what was his last soccer game of the season. Now we move on to hockey... not to mention football that is still in full swing. Of course, in between all these games and practices, we have to squeeze in school days and homework. No rest for the wicked!
That's it for now...
Take good care!
