Where to begin?!

Alex, as so many of you know, was celebrating her grade 12 graduation in Cuba with her many friends and classmates.  The unimaginable happened, and her life was lost at 18 years old.

To know Alex was to love her. She was bright and beautiful. She radiated joy and love. She was kind and caring and responsible. She was a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a  cousin, a niece, a friend, a girlfriend, a co-worker, a teammate..... and to some, the relationship she had with them doesn't comform to only one of those labels,  because she filled many of those roles. She was good. Through and through. Right down to the tips of her toes her soul was GOOD. Her soul continues to be good.

Her family, friends and all who loved her are awaiting her arrival home.  Many people have expressed a desire to help, to be able to do something- anything really; so here is an opportunity if you so wish and are able.

Funds raised will support the family with any expenses incurred as a result of this tragedy that insurance doesn't cover. Following that, if funds remain,  the family will explore other opportunities to support Alex's community, either through bursaries, programs or services.

We welcome you to contribute, as much or as little as you can.  Thank you!!

Thank you!

In a time that, for most people, is somewhat unbelievable, a time of great loss, of sadness, of tears, and of a depth of emotion that is hard to comprehend, people near and far rallied and responded. In a time of so many questions, of anxious waiting, of sorrow, of yearning, friends and strangers alike stood strong behind a family; there is comfort in that. There is love in that. And that doesn’t end now with the closing of this page.

A very difficult time is still ahead. Alex finally comes home. The community will gather to say their farewells. Family and friends alike will ache….but they’ll also remember. And share stories. And share photo’s. And hug, and cry and love each other. And they’ll strengthen their bonds. And they’ll honour their girl.

For those who didn't have a chance to contribute, please note that the family has requested donations to the Women's College Hospital in Toronto - you can find their information at www.rushnellfamilyservices.com

So… thank you!!! Thank you for your support of Karen, Jim, Ryan and Zach as their sweet Alex forever rests in peace.

After a weekend full of generosity, together we've raised almost $87,000 in six days - this is truly remarkable, thank you! ... As the family prepares for Alex's arrival home, and the focus for her parents, brothers, friends, family and the whole community shifts to formal goodbyes, we will close the gofundme page tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 pm. ... I've attached a beautiful tribute to Alex from her cousin... it's a beautiful way to close this chapter. https://soundcloud.com/brock-tufts/july-17-alex-you-will-be-missed-so-much

As of 2:16 pm Thursday afternoon we have reached $71,345. 930 donations made representing thousands and thousands of people, with 116,000 visits to this page, and almost 4,000 shares. I think Alex would smile at that. Please inform your networks that the page will remain active for a few more days but we'll close it out sometime next week and be sure all of the funds get to the family as soon as possible. Thank you all!
