Our deepest sympathies!
This great lady is the last of the McDonald clan…always smiling, always social, always welcoming her extended family from out of town.
She will be missed.
Sincerely Art and Helene

My sincere condolences to you and Brian and your entire family Linda . Your mom is a great lady and a good friend and we did share some good times and chats over coffee at the square .I always looked forward to seeing her and hearing her laughter as she chatted with her many friends at the food court . She always mentioned you and boasted of your successes .
Hope I get to see you again before you head back !
