Strength to our Friends Afar

One of the challenges of a vagabond lifestyle is that we have friends all around the world. So when something happens, we can only send our best thoughts from afar, and can feel really helpless to actually help out in any real or physical way. My ISU pal Olaf, who we spent 3 wonderful weeks with in August, just emailed that his beloved mother Julie passed away. Olaf awes me with his dedication to his family and we have so many great talks about life, so I can only imagine how hard this is for him. Olaf, the whole Clan MacCheung loves you, and sends our deepest condolences to you and your family.
We also wish the best for Zachary and Jacob's friend Scott Gemmell back in St. Catharines. To their family's shock, Scott was just diagnosed with leukaemia and is starting four weeks of chemotherapy at McMaster University Hospital in Hamilton. We hope Scott fights as hard as he plays in football, and also wish for strength for the whole family.

  1. Sorry about the news.

    Olaf's mother looks a beautiful woman with a fine-looking son there.

    Sorry about young Scott. The Juravinski centre in Hamilton is world-class. One hears of youngsters getting leukaemia and making full recovery, hope that's the case for Scott, but sorry for what he must go through with the treatments and all.
