    I didn’t know Tiffany very well, but she was always kind to me. It saddens me to see that she was taken way too soon; 16 is way too young.

    My condolences go out to her family; no parent should ever have to go through this. ๐Ÿ™

    Anna & Miranda; My heart is breaking for you. We have known Tiff since she was born, and she always would smile and wave at us. I always had coins downstairs to give the kids for their fund raisers. I don’t know what else to say except I’ll miss my girl who always said hi to the 2 bobs. You’ll be my angel.

  6. Tiffany was a great cousin. She knew how to make people smile. I send my love to her and her family

  7. Dear Williams family,
    You do not know me, but your beloved family member Tiffany Williams did. I hope that at least one of you sees this and that my condolences reach out to you. (I would send this all in a card with a proper gift but I cannot, since I do not know of another way of reaching you. )
    I met Tiffany in elementary school, we both attended Highland Park Elementary. In grade three we met through an art therapy workshop designed to help bullied kids have somewhere safe to talk about what they were going through and express their feelings through art. At the time I had only been in Canada for one year and I never fit in, I was constantly an outlier, I always thought I had it the worst that there was no other kid in Canada who had it as bad as I did. Then, I met Tiffany and I saw in her eyes the same thing I saw in mine when I looked in the mirror: that wide-eyed gaze ready for anything. Ready to receive the worst blow, ready to be yelled at and bullied, but that look held something deeper, something that made every piece of you want to help whoever was trapped inside. It was the look of fear and hopefulness that someone would reach out and help. I knew as soon as I met her that I was not the only one who felt that way, the only one who sometimes went home crying because she did not know what to do anymore to make the other kids accept her. When I saw that gaze in Tiffany’s eyes and she in mine, a thousand words were communicated at once, but one stood phrase stood out: “it’s not just me?” As time went on, we opened up slowly to each other and became friends, not just in the workshop but outside on the playground. I remember the day when I realized that teasing was not a bad thing because of Tiffany. It was the last day of the workshop and we had a party to celebrate. The bell was going to ring and so I (the greedy little kid I was!) tried to stuff my face with all the food there was and tried to finish eating all the chips. Then, Tiffany said something like: “It’s just like you Anna to be stuffing your face with chips!” And then we all laughed, I did not feel put down, I felt happy and only now do I realize that she had teased me, but not like the other kids, she teased me like a friend, a true friend. Another time a little before this, we were both on the monkey bars and I asked a question I had been dying to ask but would never have asked if I thought Tiffany was not a possible friend. I asked what she had in her mouth, because I always saw her with something green in her mouth which were her braces but I never knew that. She showed me and told me they were braces, and then I told her something that I otherwise would never have said unless I knew she would not put me down “Oh! I kept thinking they were beans…but I didn’t think you could have beans in your mouth for that long.” And again, we both laughed. I did not think much of it at the time but now I realise that those were the baby steps we took to opening up to the world and it happened through each other. Through those years of turmoil, I remember Tiffany as a happy girl who never lost hope, someone I looked up to and was a friend of. Even though we were never truly close, I realize now that Tiffany was more than a friend to me, she was one of the reasons why I stopped being a shy and afraid person, and became myself. She was one of the ways in which I transitioned from the poor defenceless creature I was to the strong person I am today. Tiffany and I grew up and became who we wanted to be, not what others wanted us to be. I owe much of that to Tiffany and I only hope that I also helped her in her journey. Years passed, and we saw each other less frequently, during high school I saw her on the bus to and fro school, where we had a small “how are you” sort of conversation. Sometimes I just saw her riding the bus before mine and I can still see her on that bus waving at me and smiling and myself doing the same.
    I cannot say anything nor do anything that will heal your pain, all I can do is pray and hope that these words help you to know that she did not just impact people when she was older, but also when she was in grade three. When she was just a kid she was never forced to help me, but she did anyways and I cannot express how thankful I am for that.
    Again, my condolences reach out to your entire family and I hope you see this.
    Sincerely,
    Anna Park
