It is with great sadness that NETcomm reports the passing of Taylor MacPherson (the 17-year old son of NETcomm’s publisher and conference director, John MacPherson) on Tuesday, April 20. The cause of death was Meningitis.
Visitations were held at the Marshall Funeral Home in Richmond Hill, Ont., April 25th, and 26th (the latter followed by a public service). Later, the family will conduct its own, private ceremony for Taylor’s internment.
On behalf of the family, we’d like to extend a big Thanks to everyone who expressed their condolences and support. It remains greatly appreciated.
Taylor fell victim to Meningitis C, a particularly virulent form of the illness. If you feel compelled, please consider a donation in Taylor’s name to the:
MENINGITIS RESEARCH FOUNDATION OF CANADA
