It’s been a trying and difficult time for so many of us recently with Tori’s passing. Tori was a bright light and creative soul that we all got to experience thanks to her open spirit. Having her in our lives was gift, which was obvious from all the beautiful pictures and moving words that have decorated her Facebook page.
Although she moved away from Whistler a few years back, to many of us, this is where we met Tori. She worked and played among us, making friends and creating great memories with us all. So, we wanted to create a little memorial, of sorts, for her in Whistler. The municipality has a tribute park bench program that caters nicely to the desire to have a place to remember our friend. We have done this for another friend that passed away. In doing so we created a special place where friend could gather or individuals could reflect, or strangers could be made aware that a gorgeous person is loved and missed by so many. We feel like Tori’s friends in Whistler and even friends from further away need this little spot to exist. A little way to say we love and miss you, Tori.
The cost of this bench is $3000. We have set up a little fundraiser to try and make this happen.
Due to the snow and frozen ground this bench will not be set up until the spring. But we would love to have to paperwork and fee paid in advance of spring so it runs rather quickly from there.
If we happen to raise more money then required, all remaining funds will be donated to whistler community services, which provides help and counselling to individuals in need, among other vital social services.
Thank you in advance for all the donations so we can have a place to remember her by
