The memory of a slain 17-year-old boy will be alive after family bakery reopens

Jimboy, the 17-year-old boy from Winnipeg, was killed when unknown people broke into his house.

The parents of the deceased young guy want their son not to be forgotten and reopen the family bakery because he loved to bake so much.

Now, Winnipeg residents call city inhabitants to come to the Filipino bake shop and to support the family.

Arlene Pabiz came to Jimel's Bakery at 660 Sheppard St. on Monday. The woman bought bread and buns and she was deeply touched by the tragedy of this family.

On Monday, Imelda and Jaime Adao reopened their bakery for the first time after their son died. Pabiz is a member of the Filipino community and she will be happy to come to the shop and to recommend it to everyone she knows to show her support and love.

Imelda and Jaime Adao decided to retitle the bakery after their son, Jaime Adao Jr. or Jimboy. They were very proud of Jimboy and want to continue to make his dreams come true. There is not only a desire to develop a business but also a great love for their son.

Photos of the guy will soon appear in the bakery.

Michelle Shemeluk, another Winnipeg inhabitant, has not been at the bakery yet. However, despite this fact, she declared her support on Facebook, which gathered a lot of likes and shares. Thanks to this, more than a thousand people learned about the bakery.

People who were clients of the bake shop in the past also came to show their love and memory on Monday.

The bakery is located on Sheppard St. and it is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Saturday.

Bad Service

I’m sure, everyone likes to drive to the parking lot and find the open spot to park close to the entrance.
