    No words can express my sorrow at hearing the news that Donna has gone on to her next adventure. Our golf games were always filled with laughter. I think Donna was the only one who kept score. My sincerest condolences to all the family, and as I am returning to Northern Ontario this year, I will continue to honk the horn each time I pass your old cottage.
