May 12, 2012 blog follow up

I have been wanting to post this follow up to my "I wish an Angel for you!" blog, originally posted on May 12, 2012 for quite some time.

Debbie of  Fletchers Lake, N.S. had sent me this photo last year.  She had cross stitched 37 of my Angels and inserted them into ornament tucks.

She crafted these ornaments with love and then gifted one to each family that had lost a loved one in The Bluebird/Wagon Wheel fire, in Montreal Quebec 40 years ago.   The fire was deliberately set by 3 men who were thrown out of the club.  They poured gasoline into the stairwell and 37 souls perished, one of these was her husband's  21 year old sister.  His sister's best friend was another.
The city of Montreal, with  committee members made up of Family members made a permanent memorial at Phillips Square downtown Montreal.  You can read about the families' battle to have the city recognize this incident on facebook or google.
As per Debbie - Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live it with all you've got! Go for it, Everyday.
