Our very close friend Samantha Stremmelaar was killed on August 7th in a terrible car accident on her way home from visiting her parents.
With her parents living over 8hrs away in Southern Quebec we understand that it makes it difficult for those who would like to attend the ceremony to make the trip. To top it off there are very few accommodations close by.
I, along with my Wife, Danielle, and other close friends are putting together a ceremony for her here in KW. This would allow her friends, co-workers and teammates to participate in a ceremony celebrating her life.
We are looking into using the indoor soccer field, where she played, as the “hall”, but if that doesn't work out we will rent an actual hall. On top of the hall there is also the costs for catering, and the rentals for chairs and table. We ask that those who would like to make a contribution to do so and aid in celebrating Samantha together.
Any additional money, not allocated to the ceremony, will be donated to the three World Vision children that she has sponsored for a number of years.
At this time we are waiting to set a date, but once that has been done we will let everyone know. We hope to have it figured out by the end of the week.
