To the McDonald Children,
My sincere condolences are being sent to you all. I remember being neighbors to you and going to Swans Country School together those were the good days. Losing a loved one is never easy but you have your memories of your Mom. Know that she will always be close to each of you and in your hearts forever. So sorry for your loss.
