Letters: Parents’ separation causing stress

Daughter wants both parents moved to Sooke's Ayre Manor

I am requesting a transfer of my mother, Dawna Zigay to Ayre Manor in Sooke.

My family lives, works and is still paying taxes in this community. My father, Edward Zigay, is still living on Woodlands Road in Sooke. Mom’s life has been in Sooke, a member of the Lions for many years and a well-known member of the community. As well, her brother and sister and most of the cousins are still living in the community. Ayre Manor has some of the cousins and her friends living there. Her son is the owner and operator of Sooke Power Supplies Ltd.

My father is having a great deal of difficulty driving into Victoria and does not like to go alone. We would also like to see him residing at Ayre Manor as soon as possible. My parents have been married for 60 years on May 28, 2015. It would be in the best interest for everyone concerned to have them reunited as soon as possible. The stress of traveling and the separation of them being apart is having a very negative impact on his  health.

Dawna and Edward Zigay have lived and worked and raised their family, supported the community and raised money for the manor in Sooke, and it is unfortunate that they cannot be recognnized for their contributions and be reunited in the manor they helped build.
