Bee died by suicide.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and untimely passing of Hailey "Bee" Mackenzie Lawson on the afternoon of May 2, 2023.

Bee lived life fully – they enjoyed making other people laugh and were nothing short of amazing. Bee could light up a room with their ridiculousness and had a mind of their own. Bee was a very talented writer and thoroughly enjoyed reading, as well as art, binge watching tv series, collecting monster cans, and sometimes causing a little mayhem. There was never a dull moment with Bee around. Bee also loved her friends to a fault and loved going out for crazy fun-filled adventures.

Bee has many friends and family that will miss them deeply. Bee was a unique personality that people couldn’t help but be drawn to. Bee was quirky, funny, a little outrageous, and never hesitated to speak exactly what was on their mind. They were blunt and vulgar, but the most fun to be around in so many ways.

It is often those who seem the happiest who are the saddest inside; Bee struggled with depression and mental health for several years and tried to keep going, but Bee just could not handle the pain they felt inside anymore. This world was too harsh a place for a soul so full of life and love.

Bee will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Their memory will live on through the lives of others. Rest easy my sweet bumble bee.

Memorial donations may be made to Rebel Cat Rescue, Regina Cat Rescue, or Camp Fyrefly as gifts of remembrance. Floral donations are welcome; Bee's favourite flower was a sunflower.

One of the articles linked below contains this chilling sentence:

"Bee had lost four friends to suicide over the past year, the most recent just the night before."
