Lisa Gibbons

We, the Gibbons/Weyler/Barriscale Family wish to express our deepest and sincere thanks for all that has been given to Denise in her time of need.

We thank the amazing staff at the Cortes Medical Clinic for all your special attention and support you gave Denise during this difficult time.
We thank the myriad of alternative healers, doctors and practitioners for their profound gifts to us as well.
We thank the talented caregivers, coming day and night, giving the most incredible support we could ever have hoped for.

Special mention to Mary-Jo Woolgar, Ellan Anderson, Dr. Friaire in Mexico, Tyler Thacker, Darshane Stevens, Alex Hornby, Priya Huffman, Niko Mense, The Klahoose Nation, Hollyhock, David Shipway, Cortes Market, Hannah Petkau, Benazir Radmanesh, Dancing Wolf, Mark Appleyard, Dayna Davis, and Dean Yellowalk, Liam Weyler and Jonah Weyler.

We are grateful for the extraordinary financial support through GoFundMe. The abundance of generosity from this community, and from our family and friends, has been astounding and humbling. This allowed Denise and Norm to follow mum’s wishes for a non-traditional treatment plan.

We wish to thank our brilliant, extrodinay community for the continuous, unconditional generosity and support.

The generous food fairies.
The visitors, the caregivers
The day sitters, the night shift folks
The vigil keepers
The friends, the gift givers, the altar makers
The wood donators, the vessel/casket makers
The burial site artists
The singers, the musicians
The meditators
AND the flower bringers.

All of this incredible effort from our family and Cortes community helped carry out Denise’s last wishes and made her last months here be ones of joy, peace, gratitude and a true quality of life.

We thank our amazing family for all their dedicated love and support for Denise – Most importantly, her main caregiver, her most devoted and beloved Norm.

My beautiful Denise
