Lower Sackville House Fire Victim

On the early morning of March 3, 2018, in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia,  the most unthinkable tragedy happened to Pat Hart.  Imagine spending the evening with your loved ones, singing country music, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.  When the evening came to a close, she tucked in her granddaughter, Carys, said good night to her husband Marven, her son Trent and went to bed.

 During the middle of the night an electrical fire breaks out in the basement, that takes the lives of her husband, son and grand -daughter.  She herself barely escaping and rescued by first responders.

This is the most unbearable, suffering and tragic loss a person could experience.  Her life has forever been altered.  Her being for living as been tested.  Her heart has been shattered in a million pieces.  Her soul has been crushed.  How do you survive holding the hand of your 18-year-old son while he passes away?  All they did was go to bed.  How do you say good-bye to your husband and 11-year-old granddaughter?  All they did was go to bed.

The life in which Pat Hart knew it is no longer.  Her family has been stolen from her.  Her home and belongings are destroyed.  She is left behind searching for strength to carry on and live another day. 

Pat is surrounded by family, friends and a community who love her dearly.  She is not alone in her mourning and grief.  The long road ahead of her has only just begun.  She will never heal, she will never wake up to another day filled with happiness.  She will suffer heartbreak for the remainder of her life. This is a loss you do not recover from. 

We, as her friends, family and community cannot take this pain from her.  However, we have the ability to ease the financial burden that this tragedy has left her to face.  Please help us, to help her provide the memorial her husband and child deserve.  We cannot make this nightmare end for her, but together we can make a difference.

RIP Trent, Marven and Carys.  You are forever in our hearts and memories.

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes, filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things,
we did not get to say.
I know how much you loved me,
as much as I loved you,
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we are far apart,
for every time you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.

Thank you for all your support, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

~Love from the family and friends of Pat, Marven and Trent Hart~
