  3. Dear Ardis and Family

    For many years I was blessed to work with Don at TransAlta. He was a great friend and teacher over the may years we worked together in purchasing. You always knew what Don wanted because he approached life and expressed himself with a great deal of passion. He loved his work and was 150% committed to the job. I am thankful for knowing Don and he will be missed by all of us.
