Testimonials for Wendy Comeau
"Dear Staff and Trustees of the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board:
I do not usually do book endorsements.
However, I need to make an exception in this case.
Wendy Comeau is one of our former parents. Her son, Christopher, was a student while I was Principal of St. Joseph's Catholic High School. Her son was an extraordinary, courageous young man who will be remembered fondly by staff and students alike. Those of us who were privileged to work with Christopher will remember him for his incredible positive outlook on life, despite the life's journey that he was facing.
Christopher died a few years ago, and this book, A Heart of Kindness, by Wendy Comeau, his mom, is a testament to his love, compassion and courage. It is a beautiful read, where hope is chosen over despair. It is the journey back to wellness after the sadness of losing a child.
I wanted to let you know that Wendy is going to be at Chapters on Saturday, May 26th, 2018, as indicated below.
Whether you knew Christopher or not, if you are available, I encourage you to drop by and meet Christopher's mom, perhaps buy a book (!) and be inspired by the story of her son. Many of us are dealing with challenges in our work and in our personal lives, and I thank Wendy for moving through her sadness to help all of us get to a place of wellness and hope.
Christopher loved being a student at St. Joseph's Catholic High School, and we were honoured to have him as one of our students of the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board."
