    Dear Sharon and family, I’ll really miss Lorne and I was so thankful that I had the chance to spend time with you and Lorne when I lived in Calgary. I’ll always have lots of fond memories of Lorne. I’ll always remember the times when Rodger and I spent time with you and Lorne when we’d go out for lunch and supper and the times we’d go visit Sister Leonie. I also have memories of Lorne when he came here to Windsor for the Canadian Transplant games and he took some of my friends and I out for breakfast. I have pictures of Lorne, as well as a key chain he got me, plus a T-shirt he gave me of the games. These and other precious memories will always be cherished, and it’s all the fond memories we share that will sustain us and give us the strength to get through until the Lord calls us home and we’ll see each other again. My thoughts, prayers and love go out to Sharon and the girls.
    Love and blessings, Dawn
