Many years ago, our parents left their family and everything they knew to come to Canada and give their children the best life and opportunity. Our memories of our mother involve working day and night, sacrificing. She loved without condition and was proud of any accomplishment. Her lifelong dream was to live out her days on her farm that she worked so hard for.She was a passionate strong woman, with a desire to live and see her family thrive. She leaves an incredible legacy and we will live the rest of our lives making her proud.
