Kate Drury

We are saddened by the passing of our dear friend Kate.  She was and is a model of incredible courage and unbelieveable love to all who knew her.  She will be desperately missed.

Many friends of the Drury's have reached out to show their support for this amazing family in many ways.  Their friends would like to honour Kate's legacy and support Brian, Julie and Jack in this difficult time.  People have made suggestions for ways in which help may be given, such as an education fund for Jack, a family trip, donation to mitochondrial research and much, much more.  At this time we don't know what would be of most help to the Drury's, but we will leave this fund open for those who would like to help ease their burden.  We will provide an update once Brian and Julie have shared their wishes.

Sheila and Steve
