To my good friend and brother-in-law Darrell (Trapper) - and to the family of Edna Josephine... I did not know this young lady - mostly because I was living in Halifax for 37 years. However - she must have been a wonderful woman, because I know Trapper is a wonderful man. Please accept the hugs & prayers of the MacKinnon family. May she rest in the arms of Jesus. As they say in Gaelic - she is gone to "Tir Nan Og" - the land of the eternally young.
