Hotston Education Fund

Hi Friends,

We have started this GoFundMe page in loving memory of our
dear friend Brenda Hotston.   Our goal is to help raise money to
help with future education expenses and any major life events
ahead for the Hotston children. 

Brenda bravely walked through a 2 1/2 year battle with stage 4
ovarian cancer.  Brenda, Ryan and their five children Katherine 16, Emma 15, Lucas 13, Keagan 10, and Caleb 7, all  remained strong,
fighting with everything they had in them.

We are so very thankful for each one of you that joined the fight
for Brenda’s life by praying and standing with her in faith.  Brenda
entered the presence of her Lord on
November 21st with her
husband and her mother Bridget by her side.

Words just cannot express how much Brenda’s strong faith
inspired everyone around her right up until her last breath. To say we will deeply miss our beautiful, strong, loving, Irish Rose is an

Ryan & Brenda are just one of those couples that after meeting
them you would never forget them. They both have such big
hearts that have encouraged and been a huge blessing as deacons, ministering to children and tirelessly serving in their community.    Brenda’s heart and life were surrendered to her Lord. She
remained courageous and strong in her faith, inspiring all by her

Please continue to pray for Ryan and their children, that the Lord’s presence and comfort daily be theirs. Ryan is such a wonderful
loving father, who now carries both parenting roles.  This fund is not only to honour our friend Brenda but, to also ease the demands on Ryan as he helps his family go bravely forward. 

This GoFundMe account will be shared equally by each of the
children for future education and any major life events.

Please donate. This is a secure, online platform for donations.  No amount is too small. Please share this link and tag your friends.

Our hope is to exceed our initial goal and to bless and invest in this family and their future. Thank you so much for taking time to read, donate, and share this. Words simply cannot express just how
much every expression of love means in this difficult time.

May God abundantly bless each and everyone of you.
