For years I have had the honour of being on the Board of Directors for the Green Wood Coalition in Port Hope. I am extremely proud of the work the GWC has been able to do in helping many within our community who struggle with basic needs. I also had the pleasure of making some acquaintances and friends who have had a major impact on how I view the world. I met Sue at Green Wood. Sue has since passed away, but she had a very special view on life that taught me humility and acceptance. Sue would tell you that she was not poor – she was just less fortunate than others. Words are powerful in their impact, and Sue’s words never left me. They inspired me to try to enlighten others.
I miss you Sue.
