One Day To Remember
When a loved one dies, certain days of the year take on new and significant meaning. These days are etched forever in our hearts; where we experience both the pain of loss and separation along with the warmth of irreplaceable memories and feelings of gratitude for the connection we shared. At the Camp Kerry Society we are well aware of the importance of these special days and the meaning they hold. We know the importance of remembering and honouring our loved ones and doing so in a way that somehow contributes to making a difference to others.
And so, we created our One Day To Remember fundraising initiative. Our goal is to raise funds so that we can continue to bring hope to even more children, youth and families whose lives have been forever changed by the death of a loved one.
If you have a special day of remembrance in your life, or if you want to make a difference for others touched by grief, please consider joining us in our One Day to Remember campaign for as little as $5/month. Friends & family are also welcome to join this initiative.
If you wish to have a photo of your loved one shared on our website then please contact us.

No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye, You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. Miss you and love you forever Tash, forgetting you never.

Words will never be enough to say how much you have given me.
Your legacy of love continues to inspire and guide me.
“This is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart …
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart) …
I am never without it … ” (e.e. cummings)
Thank-you for everything Bas.
With all my love,

He leads his flock like a shepherd. He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart. He gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11
