I dont know if you will rember me. Darlene and I spent many happy times together in North Bay going to the Bingo. We also did some pretty crazy things. like dressing up at Halloween and visiting some of the bingo players for tricks or treats. The last time I heard for Darlene was she as coming to Ottawa on course and said she would be coming to the Bay to see me, but she never came. I have tried may times to locate your family but I never found you. My thoughts are with you Colin and the family. I was very lucky to have found Darlene, I have thought of her often she was always a good friend
