We lost a friend
For those of us at Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada, Stewart exemplified three things. Family, friendship and fun. His family was the most important thing to him, followed closely by his friendships: both of these intertwined with an innate ability and desire to have fun.
For us, it all started with this picture of Stewart in his Ferrari, with his new found friend Eric, at our first Drive 4 Smiles event. Stewart wasn’t sure what to expect, but upon spending time with Eric, he became a strong believer in the magic of Starlight Canada.
As with anything Stewart sinks his teeth into, Starlight Canada was a beneficiary of his wisdom, insight, driving force and desire to excel. He wanted Drive 4 Smiles and Starlight Canada to be the best, and I’d say he succeeded by the thousands of smiles he put on children’s faces.
We will miss our dear friend. I personally can’t stop wiping tears from my eyes as I think of him, but they inevitably turn to heartfelt laughter at all of the stories. I can’t wait for the day we will be raising a toast and recounting some of those stories in Stewart‘s honour when we are able to.
Our special love to Debbie and the entire family for sharing Stewart with us over the years, and now, believing in Starlight Canada with this fund.
