On Dec 19 a colleague of mine recieved the worse news a parent could ever recieve. His baby girl had suddenly Passed away in her sleep peacefully. Madison Vasseur had just turned 18 years old. Madison was a young woman who loved to dance, along with many other things teenagers like to do, but Dance was her escape and passion.This helped her deal with some of the daily challeneges living with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Madison was a loving daughter to Kevin and Victoria Vasseur and sister to Derek John Vasseur. I personally never had the opportunity of meeting Madison, however I do know her father Kevin, as many of you may aswell wether it be through church, the community , worked with Kevin over the years, and I'm sure anyone who does know Kevin would agree that Kevin has a heart of Gold. He takes challenges in life that others may not be able to handle so well and he takes them head on, never complains always makes the best of every situation and literally would take the shirt of his back or the last dollar in his pocket to help another in need! These are traits I'm sure passed down to his daughter Madison. No one ever wants to go through the passing of their child, there is obviously never a good time for this, especially during this time of year that is supposed to be about family, spending time with loved ones. Kevin's "work" family decided to start the fund for the Vasseur family to assist them with some of the financial burdens that come with the passing of a loved one. Being able to help this family with this would make it ones less thing for them to have to worry about during a time where all they really need to be doing is being there for one another and greiving properly without the added financial stress.
We would like to achieve our goal of this monetary expression of sincere condolences to the Vasseur family by Jan 12th 2018.
below is an article about Madison that I found very powerful.
