THANK YOU

Dear Swansea students, parents, teachers and community,

Evora, Oscar and I want to express our heartfelt thanks for all the love and support you’ve shown us.  The first few weeks after Tom’s – Mr. Samson’s – passing were a blur so, regrettably, I am not able to thank everyone by name.  But we will always remember the flood of cards, donations, letters, prayers, meals, photos, gifts – even concert tickets, and the tremendous outpouring of love that you sent our way.

Tom’s life was a lesson in kindness, positivity and love, and I’m sure Tom would be honoured  to see that lesson carried on in his name.

With gratitude,
Kasia Breigmann-Samson, Evora & Oscar
