Our sincerest condolences on the loss of Don. May the Lord give you great grace and peace as you journey through this time of loss and grief. I believe it was very fitting that the last time we saw Don and Verna was at Princess Auto in Regina. I have many fond memories of working with Don at SaskPower and am grateful for having known him.
