Tea Lounge 2nd Anniversary Celebrating Gratitude

Nathan T. Deslippe first introduced me to Michelle Pierce Hamilton when Michelle had a store at the market in Hyde Park. We enjoyed going there for yoga and tea. It was a wonderful summer full of laughter, yoga and friendship.

Mona Lam-Deslippe and Tim Deslippe will be at the The Tea Lounge Friday evening starting at 5 pm. Join us for the Gongfu Cha ceremony (traditional Chinese tea ceremony) or just drop by for a cup of tea and a hug.

For this special weekend – 15% of all sales will be donated to the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund – Thank you Tea Lounge!

For Gongfu Cha ceremony ticket and information visit our facebook page. Tickets are not necessary to stop by for a cup of tea.

Thank you to our family, friends and community:

Thank you for the love and support. For walking this journey with us that began August 28, 2016 – the day we all lost Nathan.It has been a difficult 2.5 years with many lows and highs and you have helped to keep us going, pulled us out and kept us connected. Our world will never be the same. We lost our son and brother but have gained a stronger community.

The support we have received from people in our system has been phenomenal – police services, victim assistance office, crown prosecutor, and others we are not even aware of. These people deal with parts of our society that most of us are not exposed to. Thank you to this hard-working group who are so compassionate.

To our family, friends and community we can only say thank you from the very very bottom of our hearts. Your love and support has been the Band-Aid that has helped ease the pain, and the carrot and stick that kept us going and pulled us out. Thank you for the trees, meals, songs, hugs, messages, massages, check-ins, driving to be with us, sitting in court with us, impact statements, parties, memorial fund, donations, celebrations, stories, photos, events, and your caring!

We have struggled at times with the public exposure of our lives. There has also been much respect for our privacy and grief. Our continuing journey to bring awareness of our system and battle issues within our system is to hopefully give back to our community and make it a safer, better system.

Our work with the memorial fund and community initiatives is to contribute to our community with the values that we taught our children and what Nathan has come to stand for.

We will continue with the next segment of our journey. A journey that we look forward to travelling with you, our community. Watch for more events and community initiatives. A journey with friends is a journey with love!
