Dear Donald and Family,
It was with sadness that my Mom, Colleen Cathcart, and I heard of Rona's recent passing. We offer our sincere condolences. While she lived some tough years after her stroke, it was clear she lived them with courage, dignity and determination. You are no doubt experiencing some dark days. However, I know you have many great memories of your Mom that will brighten such dark moments. I know memories of my Dad make me smile every day. We certainly have some nice and funny memories of her and your Dad. She will be missed dearly but her spirit lives on.
Take care. Blaise.
