Samantha was a much loved mother and grandmother who had lived some of her life on the streets and had often struggled to stay alive.

A Faith Story – Part Four Tamara could not believe what her younger sister, Samantha, had asked her to do the very first time they had seen each other in over thirty-five years. In as plain words as one could ever use, Samantha had said to her older sister, who was a doctor at The Hospital for Sick Children, “’I want you to help me end my life.’” For a moment, Tamara had said nothing, and then the words burst forth from her, “No! Never! What are you talking about?” “I know my daughter, Sahara, has told you that I’m very sick,” Samantha had replied calmly. “I’m not sure she knows just how...

A Faith Story – Part Three Samantha and Tamara sat across from one another, hands locked together as they reached across the table in the hospital cafeteria. Sahara was sitting with her five year old daughter, Faith, in Faith’s hospital room while Sahara’s mother, Samantha, was catching up with her own older sister, Tamara, who was Faith’s doctor at the Hospital for sick children in Toronto.

A Faith Story – Part Two It was Easter Sunday, 2018, when Tamara watched her sister being killed. At least that’s what the records showed. But Samantha had died many times long before that fateful day. Tamara and Samantha were born in the late 1960’s in London, England to parents from a multi-racial lineage.

Samantha had a narrower face with high cheekbones and straight, blonde hair that was of a fine texture. In the early 1970’s, the family immigrated to Canada and settled in the...
