Holiday Wish Come True

This past week, we had the pleasure of hosting a family from Sarnia who's son has terminal brain cancer. Gord saw an article about the family wishing to visit their family in Muskoka for the holidays in the Sarnia Observer newspaper. (Gord searches for news about "Muskoka" each day and this article turned up. The wonders of the internet. You can get access to news from all over the world. )
The article didn't say where the family lived in Muskoka, so we sent an email to the newspaper reporter. As it turned out, the family they wanted to visit, lives in Baysville, Huntsville and Bracebridge - which is right where we are!

They were able to visit Grandma in Baysville on her birthday, see the luminaries in Baysville, have Christmas dinner and visit with a lot of relatives still in the area.

See the newspaper articles:
