    Katelyn, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom… I also had great memories of her in my time spent in Calgary.. We were roommates for a few years.. She was a great friend, but since moving from Alberta and back to New Brunswick, we hadn’t kept too much in touch. However, every once in awhile when Donna was home, we would connect and it was always great to see her.
    My sympathies to you and your family.
