  2. I had the pleasure of meeting Donna and Ray at thier store in Calgary, a place where they poured much of thier heart and soul into serving thier community and customers, and it’s where i also met Steve and Lisa, as well as Bill and Cindy. It was apparent how important family was to Donna and the Busby family, and how important it is now that Donna has passed.
    I would like to offer my most sincere condolences to Ray and the family at this difficult time.

    Brent
