For Grace's Boys; In Loving Memory

On December 24th, 2015 Grace Aquino, mother of Xander (10) and Isaac (4), suffered a sudden massive stroke. She spent four days in intensive care at Victoria General Hospital. Her children were able to be by her bedside on Christmas day.Tragically, Grace passed away on December 28th, 2015 without regaining conciousness. 

Grace was a loving and dedicated mother who was generous with her time and energy. She loved being with her children flying kites, building forts, cooking together and sharing great books. She recently fulfilled the dream of taking her boys to Disneyland. In the few days before her stroke,  Grace posted the following quotes from A.A. Milne: "Promise me that you will always remember that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think", and "If there ever comes a day that we can't be together, keep me in your heart and i will stay there forever". 

Xander and Isaac are left in the care of their father, Glen.  Glen, a language proffesor, is in the process of completing his Masters degree. As a full time student this will be a financially difficult time as any spare time will be spent with the boys. Your donations will be greatly appreciated by this young family as they grieve the loss of their amazing Grace.

Thankyou so much.
