Mr. Speaker, I am heartbroken that Jessica Klymchuk, a member of our community, was one of the victims of the horrific events in Las Vegas. Jessica was a 34-year-old single mother of four beautiful children. She lived with her family in Valleyview where she worked with children at St. Stephen's School as an educational assistant, librarian, and school bus driver.
Yesterday I spoke with Jessica's family to personally offer my heartfelt condolences. To her fiancé, family friends, and colleagues, we offer our thoughts, prayers, and support. As a mother, a friend, and member of our community, she will be greatly missed.
To her four children who have lost their mother, I am deeply sorry for their loss. I cannot imagine what they must be going through right now. While no words could ease the loss of their mother, may they know they are in our thoughts and prayers as we grieve with them. May the God of all comfort be with them during this difficult time.
I invite my colleagues and all Canadians to keep Jessica's family and all who grieve lost ones in their thoughts and prayers. We grieve with them.
