As some of you know, my family, along with business partners, owns a shoe manufacturing company called Mellow Walk Footwear. In a time when there are very few Canadian shoe manufacturers, we remain a thriving company that produces top quality shoes proudly made in Canada.

The company was started by my father and his partner in 1993. While I worked there for many years, my brother has worked there since he was a teenager.

November of this year will mark the tenth anniversary of my father’s passing.

This is a difficult anniversary to think about but my brother, in his sweet and loving way, reminded me that we are fortunate for all the wonderful memories that we have of our father.

He wrote a tribute to our father that was posted on our company’s blog. You can read it here.

So proud.
