Mother of baby killed in Edmonton fire thankful for support, looking ahead

The mother of a five-month-old baby boy who died in an Edmonton house fire says she is touched by the support she is receiving from everyone.

Angie Tang says in a brief statement that she is especially thankful for a GoFundMe page that has been set up for her and her son, Hunter.

She also says she is aware of the arrests that have been made and is beginning to consider decisions around Hunter’s final resting place.

Hunter died in a fire last week that police have said was purposely set.

Firefighters rescued Tang and Hunter, but the boy died of smoke inhalation and Tang is in hospital.

Cordell Brown, the baby’s father, has said he was sleeping on the main floor and that his wife was asleep on the second floor with their son when the fire broke out.

Two people face several charges, including second-degree murder and arson, and are to appear in court on Friday.

Late Monday, Judith Lam Tang said her sister-in-law had asked her brother to place a hand-written note at the scene of the fire, where a memorial to the baby has been created.

“I am Hunter’s mom and the mom of two puppies that have gone to heaven,” wrote Angie Tang. “With your prayers and support I know I will feel better and recover. My heart is with Hunter always and I choose to remember the way he lived in my arms and wait till I hold you again. All three of you.”
