Supporting Alessio and the Forno Family

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead... Nelson Mandela

We must trust God’s path. The incredible sorrow, the incredible pain, the incredible void is inexplicable. It’s a time to mourn for what we lost. We lost a father, a son, a brother, a mentor, a friend. Jody, was given to us for his giving. Whether on the folded chair teaching, inspiring , loving his under VSC U8s or sitting on the York university bench, he selflessly gave his incredible energy, passion, sacrifice, kindness and passion to so many. So many loved him because he defined what giving love was. 

 We lost a father his relentless love for Alessio shaped his whole reason for life. With all the limitless love he could give he gave to Alessio. 

Jody was a product of his incredible family Antonette,  Giodi Sr., Ricardo and Luca always put love and kindness first. Jody was kind and beautiful. Let us all be kind to each other and please do what we can do to support Alessio and the Forno family. Please take a moment and remember your own story of Jody through he beautiful pictures and remember we must trust God’s path.

Jody was an ambassador to Soccer at large and a fabric of the Vaughan Soccer Club for over 15 years and will be missed by all but not forgotten.  He left a lasting impression on many.   

 This Go Fund Me has been set-up by Vaughan Soccer to support the Forno family with associated funeral costs and a trust fund for Alessio.  53364156_1608222226759002_r.jpeg
