Tom Samson

Dear Parents/Guardians

The support from the Swansea community over the past 2 days has been overwhelming.  We are all truly blessed to live and work in such a thoughtful and caring community.  Next week is going to be a tough week for all of us but I know we will get through this because we are such a close family.

Unfortunately I do not have any details for services to remember Tom Samson, as the family is still making some tough decisions.  The information in the Toronto Star and on the internet is incorrect.  The funeral is NOT tomorrow.  I will send out this information as soon as it becomes available and I know it is correct.

Today some parents came in and we have set up a memorial for Tom Samson in the hall by the office.  The community is welcome to come in and share their memories of Tom.  He had such a wonderful sense of humour so we are smiling through our tears.

The Swansea School Council has set up trust fund for the Samson family.  This account is at the Bank of Montreal (Windermere and Bloor).
Transit # 0367
Account # 8980907

Parents can also drop off cheques at the school office made payable to “SSC – Tom Samson Memorial Fund”.

Thank you for everyone for all of your kind thoughts.

Karen Ridley
