    Colin, Reta, and Glennie,
    I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your Mom. My heart aches for all of you. I will always remember her as my feisty, no nonsense, kind, joyful, Aunt. Her love for your Dad never wavered after all these years and was really such a beautiful love story. She is now reunited with your Dad, her parents, my parents, our grandparents, and I’m certain she is telling lots of stories and has them all laughing with her quick wit and fun and joyful personality. May you find strength and comfort in knowing how much she was loved by so many.
    Lots of love to you all, Evelyn

    So sorry on the loss of your Mom. My sister and I met Donna the first morning that we went to Acadia pool. We then were fortunate enough to become friends and enjoyed lunches out monthly. Donna was a kind, generous and funny lady who make us laugh and enjoy life a little more! I will miss her!
