Rehab for Kinsley

March 13th,  2016 – Husband, Father, Friend and  Waterman, Kinsley ThomasWong, lost his battle to overcome a devistating injury suffered with Kiteboarding.  Please read this from Kinsley's wife Jamie: "As some of you have heard by now, the love of my life transitioned on Sunday, March 13.  I am having a hard time putting words in an email to send out instead of calling, but with the amazing network of friends Kinsley connected together over the years, it is an impossible task! For now, I need to take care of Taizen (our son), be with our families, and take it moment by moment. If I don't immediately return phone calls or texts, please understand — I will when I can.

In his final moments I cuddled up next to him, and we played the Beatles song "All You Need Is Love," through ear buds in each of our ears. We chatted and sang the song on repeat, with him relaxing into sleep with the words love, love, love, all you need is love, carrying him. That huge spirit that lit up this world and was meant to fly is now free to soar."

Kinsley had the most amazing gifts. He was a master connector who touched the lives of the friends and family that hold him close, along with the individuals he met in his travels. In whatever sport, community or group he has been part of, Kinsley was that ray of sunshine that showed the world how to just be happy and present and live in the moment. He truly embodied all of these things and just loved every second we are blessed with life on this earth. Kinsley’s love of the outdoors — the beach, the warm sun and wind, and the feel of sand blowing through the air — are infectious and forever created stoke in all around him, with a smile we will all never forget!

This world will not be the same without Kinsley’s spirit, energy and stoke. He has forever changed us all. We have all gained a new guardian angel, through this angel of stoke and passion and living in the moment he will forever surround us to keep us focused on what matters most, connecting us all together as one family.

I would like to help Jamie and Taizen (Kinsley's young son) financially, while they are focusing on themselves so that they will not be burdend.   Please help if you can.
