Story Introduction

This Airdrie Angel story is about a couple that has been married 57 years, and recently the wife has had to go into the hospital due to a serious illness and the husband was not able to remain in the home by himself, due to advancing illness. They have lived in Airdrie for close to 50 years.  The last few months have been very difficult for this couple, as they have been trying to stay in their home and had planned for a family member to move in and help with personal care and day to day tasks. Unfortunately, this family member passed away very unexpectedly, and has left the family grieving the loss of an adult child.

“Any assistance to their daughter Lisa, who is trying to sort through the financial and practical implications of this unexpected move would be greatly appreciated.”

Two children recently lost their father, their mother has not been in the picture for years.  The children’s aunt and uncle have temporary custody of the children. The death of the children’s father was a shock to everyone. The kids are devastated and miss their dad dearly. The nominator said of the family “because during this time when they are dealing with their grief, loss of their dad/brother, 180 degree change in their lives, a little lift of the spirit can lighten up this dark time for them. The custodians are doing such a selfless act of love, trying to gain full custody of these two kids, I can’t imagine the stress they must also be facing.”
