"A great big thank you to the Unifor skilled trades council and Dave Cassidy for the wonderful tribute to Nancy Nichols-Kearnan in London this weekend. Such kind words, a moment of silence, and a very generous donation of $5000 to make a wish foundation on her behalf. After listening to a family today that was granted a wish from the foundation I know we picked the right charity for Nancy. She always told me that skilled trades was the best department to work for and this weekend confirmed it. Love and respect for Nancy was felt and show this weekend. So grateful." -- Kelly Campbell -- Niece
