WATCH: West Bloomfield family celebrates mother’s birthday while social distancing amid coronavirus outbreak

Foundation established in remembrance of Julian Boivin

WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. – The last few weeks have been tough on everyone, but families are still finding ways to celebrate birthdays.

On Friday, photojournalist Alex Atwell found out how friends and family made one mother’s special day still special -- while following the social distancing guidelines.

The West Bloomfield woman, Nettie Boivin, lost her husband Brad in October. She also lost her eldest son Julian a few years ago.

A foundation was established in remembrance of Julian that’s now connected to the Chad Tough Foundation.
