Honoured by Lori Laporte.
I often talk about my sister Keely. She truly inherited the green thumb from Grandpa and Grandma Laporte, who owned and operated Laporte’s Nursery and Greenhouses. She definitely had a passion for plants. She lost her fight with breast cancer on June 4, 2005 at the age of 43. She left a beautiful legacy for her two children, Tara and Eric. Keely and I had so much fun growing up. We both
had a wicked sense of humour. We laughed a lot. I really miss her.
My mother Beverlee passed away 22 months later. I was lucky enough to have had the greatest mother ever. My Mom’s love of laughter and life was infectious. Mom always made sure all holidays were very special for my sister and me and then she really spoiled our children. In addition to Keely’s children, I gave birth to two girls, Ashley and KC (Kelsey) Generoux. My Mom was as wonderful a grandmother as she was a mother. The kids loved going to Grandma’s.
I wish both Keely and mom would have lived long enough enjoy our extended family; Keely’s grandchildren Jacob, Angel and William and my grandson Arthur. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of them. I pay special tribute to two of the most beautiful and wonderful people in life. I love you guy’s non-stop around the world all the way to infinity.
