I listened to and watched while Terry Fox gained respect, admiration, and love as he ran across this vast country of ours.
I witnessed the tears of a nation when cancer returned and cut short his epic journey. I applauded his mother, Betty Fox, when she took up and continued his great hope of finding a cure for cancer.
She has now passed on, and is once again with her beloved Son. Rest in peace Mrs. Fox.
You have also earned the admiration and respect of Canada.
