~~Message from Rob~~
I write this post to all of you with great difficulty.
For the journey we have been on for the last two and a half years has reached the edge.
Candice has decided that cancer will no longer be her foe.
She decided today to leave that battle and continue on to a much brighter place.
A place of no pain!
A place of no illness!
To a place where God will guide her to the next journey.
Just pure love! Peace and happiness!
I will say again, I am blessed as are our children to have been allowed to have one of Gods angels to guide us!
Teach us, and love us!
Candy I told you today my love for you is endless.
When I wake tomorrow, I know you will be there with me. in soul we will live for eternity.
Thank you honey for all you have done for me and our Children.
Good night my Love!

2015 Nicholls Family Reunion a great success
Although the day was very soggy, and our numbers were down significantly from normal, the Nicholls Family Reunion 2015 was a great success. We enjoyed all the elements that make it a great time every year, such as mountains of food, great desserts, time for visiting, catching up on events that happened during the year, and meeting new members of the family. In addition, this year, thanks to Lori and Candy, we also enjoyed a number of games, based on the Survivor theme. Teams were selected in round-robin fashion, by age categories, which resulted in full participation by everyone in attendance from age 5 to 95. The games included nail hammering, potato peeling, butter churning, pantyhose baseball bowling, ladle and water race, and finally, the balloon and ankle stomp fest. A great time was had by all.
Minutes and pictures will be posted over the next few days.
Thanks to all who were able to attend, and we look forward to seeing everyone at next year's reunion.

Get Yourself Tested
Important Message from Candice Campbell on February 5, 2015 at 11:37am
I am writing this note today to make a plea... Get yourself tested!
As you may know, I was diagnosed in September 2014 with ovarian cancer. I have had a full hysterecomy and 4 chemo treatments so far. One of the masses found via catscan did not shrink with the chemo given. It was not able to be removed in surgery either since too interconncected with other organs and blood supply. I will soon start on another form of chemo and hope this one works to shrink it, so that possible future surgery can be done to remove it.
During all this, ... (read more)

congratulations Samantha and Jeff
Jeff & I received the greatest gift ever yesterday for Ukrainian Christmas...our son, Caiden Lock Moore, arrived on Wednesday January 7, 2015 at 12:11pm. He is 6lbs 5oz and the sweetest little guy ever. Caiden came a few weeks earlier than planned so he is spending some time in the NICU at Sunnybrook to make sure he's off to the best possible start. Please send all the happy, healing vibes you've got, to our newest family member.

Message from Gary received December 05 ....
Dear Family and friends,
I am saddened to advise you that Margaret passed away peacefully in her home this morning at 4:00 am.

The ordeal is over and her courage was evident to the end.... she is now at rest in a much better place. Arrangements for a celebration of Marg’s life will be confirmed in the coming days....
Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support...
Gary and family.

Update from Gary (Nov 5)
Marg has undergone a scope but unfortunately after a full day in hospital I was unable to see her surgeon to discuss the nature of his findings. We will follow up tomorrow. In the circumstances given the daily frustrations associated to her stay and course of ongoing treatment I will no longer be providing updates until I can advise our family and friends with some certainty what next steps might be for Marg and our family. I know you understand the challenges we face and we do appreciate your support..........

Congratulations to Uncle Russ and Aunt Anita who celebrated their 63rd Wedding Anniversary today (October 30).
Oct 22, 2014
Just a short note to let you know that Marg was hospitalized last Thursday (Oct 16) and diagnosed with pneumonia. She has responded reasonably well to antibiotics and is tentatively scheduled for discharge today (Oct 21) or tomorrow. She is obviously in a weakened state at the moment and will continue meds at home and will require home oxygen at least in the short term. Please know that Marg appreciates your prayers and support.........Gary
Oct 07, 2014
Lee recently returned home from a 7-day stay in hospital suffering from Chicken Pox. It is unclear where he got them, but is very fortunate that they weren't really bad, as his immune system is somewhat compromised from his recent chemo. Thankfully he is home now and on the mend. He continues to gain weight which is good.
Please remember Lee, Sandra and the girls in your thoughts and prayers.
Oct 05, 2014
Prayer request for Candy

Remember Candy in your thoughts and prayers
Please remember Candy (and Rob) in your thoughts and prayers. She was admitted to Henderson Hospital on Thursday night with difficulty breathing. They have so far ruled out a blood clot in the lung but said she does have fluid on the lungs. She is very saddened that she cannot make it to the reunion for it looks like she'll be spending the weekend at least right where she is.

We're all going to really miss her presence.

Unfortunately Pat and I will not be out for the reunion after all. We lost a very close friend today and we have to stay for the funeral. Since we are driving we would not be out in time. We still plan to come out and will visit but it will be later in the month. We are disappointed. We were very much looking forward to being there. I know everyone will understand. We will be in touch.

thoughts and prayers request
Good Evening, sending along a short note to let you know that over the last few weeks Marg has not been feeling well and that a recent CT scan indicates that the disease has progressed to the point where her oncologist feels that she must start another regiment of chemotherapy. We are obviously disappointed with this news but Marg remains optimistic that the treatments will help set her back into remission..thought you would want to know and as always we thank you for your thoughts and prayers...Gary

thoughts and prayers request from BC
I received a message from Sandra Desmarais today, advising that Lee has been dealing with some health issues over the past while. His kidneys are only functioning at about 40 percent. He is being treated with some strong steroids for this as well as to stabilize his immune system. They are waiting for the test results, but they think it may be auto immune kidney disease, possibly a complication from a previous surgery. He had emergency surgery three times in a 24 hour period back in December. It was not a good month.
Please remember Lee, Sandra and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
Mar 08, 2013
remember Aunt Jean
I received word today from Ben that Aunt Jean could also use your thoughts and prayers. She has been scheduled for some tests on March 22 in Hamilton. She has been advised she has fluid around her heart, she has swelling in her legs etc and a lump on her breast. Please remember her and her family in your thoughts and prayers as she faces these issues. I spoke with her this evening and she was in good spirits.
Thanks for the update Ben. I appreciate it.
Mar 05, 2013
thoughts and prayers requested
Please remember Margaret, Gary and their family in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with some challenges that have come up rather suddenly over the last few days.
Gary and Marg went down to Florida early in February after receiving the “all clear” from Marg’s oncologist. While there, Marg began experiencing bad headaches. Due to weather conditions at the time that made driving too dangerous, Marg flew home for assessment. Upon arrival of her flight, she was in a state of collapse and eextremely sick. She was taken immediately to Emergency at Welland Hospital by Shannon. Subsequent examinations revealed the presence of a brain tumor as well as the growth on her lung that had earlier been considered of no concern. Gary flew home on Friday and Shannon and Jocelyn picked him up from the airport and took him to Hamilton General where Margaret had been transferred on Thursday night.
Marg had surgery on Saturday afternoon to deal with the tumor on her brain. A plan of care was developed for her by the surgeons and oncologists. Marg was discharged from hospital on Monday and is now at home resting. Follow-up CT scans seem to indicate that she came through her surgery remarkably well. Chemo therapy and radiation treatments are very likely to follow, but not until there is sufficient healing from the operation.
Your thoughts and prayers would be very much appreciated by the entire family as Marg’s recovery continues.
