Sydney Hanrahan and Landon Trembley, both graduates of Bev Facey High School in Sherwood Park, Alt., were born just hours apart at Edmonton’s Grey Nuns Hospital on Oct. 2, 2002.
Their moms, Jackie Hanrahan and Tara Trembley, had been friends since they met at nursing school, and they shared a room in the hospital when Sydney and Landon were born.
Their two children would go on to share much as their families maintained close contact throughout the years.
Sydney and Landon went to school together, shared birthday parties, family childcare exchanges, Christmas and New Years family celebrations, summer trips to Turtle Lake and graduated together from the same high school.
Sydney will pursue a career in kinesiology while she trains as a competitive swimmer with the Olympian Swim Club in Edmonton. She is the granddaughter of Bob and Lorna Reimer of North Battleford.
Landon is enrolled in classes that will enable him to train as a firefighter. He is the grandson of Dick and Mame McCaw, formerly of Turtleford.
Wherever life takes them, they will always have two families cheering them on, says Sydney’s grandmother, Lorna Reimer.
