If you’re reading this, I have gone to sing karaoke in the sky. I could not sing for you guys for free forever. I am now singing the songs from Heaven. We have to call the bible thumpers in now as some of you might need that. I enjoyed a good smudge myself and a bible thumper from time to time.

I was a proud member of the hearing-impaired community. Everyone considered it a disability, but I considered it a blessing when I didn’t want to listen. When the world told me no, I had selective hearing and never heard it.

My proudest moments in life came from my sons. Dakota, whose love was the purest I ever felt. Dwayne made me proud so many times over. Seeing him graduate and find love and acceptance was so fulfilling to watch.

I am survived by sons, Dakota and Dwayne (Zoey); mother, Donna (John Delvecchio) MacDonald; sister, Christina Joe (as I proudly bragged that Cape Breton Princess is my baby sister); brother, Allan, who I loved every day I took breath. “I love you bro”.

To my dearest friend, Sherrie, we travelled through life together for so many years. Please don’t be sad as you wouldn’t believe the pokemon I am getting up here. I am running in that field just like you pictured I would be.

I was a very proud aunt to Allan, who is everyone’s little man, and Haley who was loved dearly.

I was predeceased by father, Franky MacDonald; grandparents, Allan and Betty MacDonald as well as Jake Campbell and Mary.

I had many aunts and uncles, many I wished came to see me, but it’s okay. I loved you all even in spite of your many faults. To my online family, your love filled my many lonely nights. Now kindness is free so sprinkle that everywhere.
