I just wanted to tell you about my, son, Donald. He is 21 years old and is looking forward to having a birthday in June. He still gets excited about that day and the party that celebrates how special he is to us.
On Wednesday, April 11th, 2012, my mother-in-law passed away peacefully. I called Rotary Home and was told that they weren’t open for respite. I cried. The next day much to my surprise Rotary Home, Citizen Advocacy and Service Co-ordination were talking to each other trying to arrange care for Donald so I could travel to Thunder Bay for the funeral. I was so grateful when I got the good news. They said, “Everything is arranged. You can say good bye to Mary Mihalik”.
My family in Thunder Bay were very grateful and happy my daughter and I were able to spend time with them. If it hadn’t been for Rotary Home making it possible, we wouldn’t have been blessed by our time together.
