Our Mum was our hero. In 1970, at just 31 years old, she embarked on a transatlantic journey by herself, with five children.
She brought us to Canada to be with our Dad who had come ahead to prepare a home for us.
We are aware of and appreciate the sacrifices she made for us.
She’s no awa’ to bide awa’.
