    My wife has been a true hero. We had our daughter last June, she has been stuck at home alone with no backup child care, unable to use our parents for babysitting. Her entire life is on hold now while this is all going on, and makes sure every day our daughter is taken care of.

    Yes! My wife and daughter deliver food each week through a local org. called Sarnia Blessings.
    Delivering food for those in need, less fortunate, and those affected by COVID.

    My wife has spent since March with the kids (ages 5 and 3) while working from home. She has been a HERO working harder than ever. The kids have became even better friends than before.

    I appreciate their sacrifices while I go to work.

    During COVID our fire family has been hit with some crappy news of two of our member's cancer taking hold in a more aggressive way. This news in the last couple of weeks has added to the stress levels of our entire fire family.
