My brother and I want to thank Kevin Rollason for including our mother (and my best friend), Jean Delorme, in Lasting legacies (Jan. 4).

She was a passionate community volunteer and Transcona resident, and inspired me to become a volunteer 36 years ago.

I helped her with the Miss Transcona pageant and the Transcona Hi Neighbour Festival, now approaching its 50th anniversary, which she was very much looking forward to before her passing.

Seeing her included made me cry, but also made me happy that her memory will continue to inspire people.

So many people put in countless hours for things they are so passionate about, whether it's a paid or a volunteer position. To remember them when they are gone is fantastic.

I'm sure Lasting legacies touched many who read it. My old neighbour called me and could barely read it to me on the phone without crying.

Once again, thank you.
