I haven't really blogged about this before now because I didn't have the heart. I ended up driving my mother out to the Bruce Trail walk, and although the event for her was less of a hike and more of a picnic, it still ended up being a decent distraction from the occasion.
My sister is still on the walk in Spain for a couple more weeks. She's posting pics to the FaceBook group.
My thanks to those who have already donated, and to those who couldn't donate but sent love and best wishes instead.
