On September 16th our best friend Alex Martin lost his mother at the age of 29. And her only being 58 and being taken away way to soon in life. Alex Martin has been an on and off member of the 49th field regiment. He is great known by many people. Come on who can forget a guy as tall as him. He has a great personality and a great sense of humor. Alex works at our local blue notes in the station mall full time. Alex Martin has had many jobs and knows many people. I hope that the people that know him can find it in there hearts to help a great guy out. Alex Martin has done a lot of work around the sault between when he was younger being the bon soo guy to volunteering at the soo search and rescue. Alex Martin has done a lot of work with the cadet foundation between most of the squadrons. The cadet program and the 49th field regiment have been a big part of Alex's life.
The loss of Alex's mother was so very sudden. His mother was hit by a car woth very severe injuries. There was an ambulance on site shortly after to take her to the hospital. There they stabilized her and started getting her ready to head to Sudbury. As they were getting her ready she had relapsed they tried CPR for 10 minutes. Unfortunately she didn't make it.
Marilyn was the kindest woman I have ever met in my entire life. She was so caring, and compassionate, and would give the clothes off her back to absolutely anyone who needed it. Marilyn spent many years working at Walmart North, where she was well known and loved by all of her customers and colleagues. For the last few years, Marilyn worked at the city bus terminal, always serving her customers with a smile.
Marilyn spent the last 29 years of her life devoting everything she had to raising her son, Alex. As a single mother of 1, she had a tough job, but she did it well, and passed on all of her amazing qualities to her beloved son.
Marilyn started her day on Saturday like any other, not knowing that she would never make it home. Losing her in such a sudden, horrifying way has been absolute hell for her son, after losing his father at a young age, his mom was all he had left. No one can imagine the pain he is feeling right now.
Alex has many friends who love and care for him just like family, and we want to do everything we can to help him give Marilyn the final farewell she so deserves.
So today we created this godfundme page so that we can raise some money to help Alex get his mom's affairs in order.
So today I'm asking the help from friends family and our city of Sault Ste. Marie to help out her son in this time of need. Because everything happened so suddenly. I highly doubt that getting back to work is the first thing on his mind. I am asking all of you today to help him in this time of need anything will help I know that I have set the bar a little high but there's about to be a lot of unexpected costs to come.
Thank you to everyone! Every little bit helps!! ❤❤❤
