It is an extreme tragedy to inform you that our colleague and friend, john mark, suddenly lost his 21 month old son mike last week to meningitis. mike was a beautiful, happy, cheeky toddler and contracted an aggressive strain of meningitis which tragically took him from his family within a matter of hours.
This sudden loss has devastated the family and close friends and even though we can offer support both emotionally and physically I feel there is more we can do to help.
john relocated to Canada from the UK with his family and mike was born here in summer 2013. It is the family’s wish to have mike buried on a family grave plot in Essex, England. The cost of having his flown back to the UK and buried are extortionate and insurance only covers a small fraction of the costs.
We are setting up a fund so that we can help with the cost of having his buried in Essex, England.
please donate through this website and also bring friends and family to raise as much money as we can for john,mary and kaitlyn
Please support me in helping ease the burden of the funeral costs by contributing to the fund, as I’m sure, just as I do you feel completely helpless as we cannot take away the pain of what losing a child brings but we can help with the financial burden this will have on
john and his family in the years to come.
thank you all
