Hello and thanks to all who’ve read, written and sent support, condolences and love. It has been much appreciated by those of us on the inside of this great loss.
My mother’s not yet been able to read this blog, but I know that when the time comes she will be as honoured and comforted as I have been by all of your kind thoughts towards us and our boy.
I wanted to give a quick update on the situation with the preliminarily-named C.J.J. Reimer Scholarship Fund:
The team has had a few meetings, and we’re quite excited about our ideas, however, we still need to deal with some legalities, firm up our intended partnerships and obtain official not-for-profit status.
As soon as the Fund is ready to officially launch, we will announce it both on this blog and in media releases.
In the meantime, if any of you would like to contribute to the fund, you may send cheques directly to my father C/o the following:
11 Woodhaven Crescent, S.W.
Calgary, AB T2W 5S3
Funds may be earmarked for either the production of Chris’ unpublished music or for the scholarship. (Please just send a note indicating your preference). A separate bank account has been set up to hold the funds raised so far until we’re ready to transfer them into the official fund account.
Please backchannel me if you have any further questions: nikki(dot)reimer(at)gmail(dot)com
Sincerely and humbly,
Nikki Reimer on behalf of Team Reimer!
