It is with sadness that we heard of the passing of Michael Wooley a long time supporter of Family Advocacy's mission. Michael passed away on 2 May 2013. He served on the Board of FAI for 15 years and held the positions of Secretary and Public Officer during that time.
Michael was awarded Inaugural Life Membership to Family Advocacy in November 2012 in recognition of long and valuable service to FAI board and members.
