Sad News

When I was in Toronto, I had an opportunity to visit with some dear friends that I miss. There were two couples that we socialized with, travelled with, played with and worked with for more than 25 years.

Over the years, we have all had serious illnesses, myself included and we lost dear Mike, a NLer from Stephenville last year. Yesterday, we got a call telling us that quite suddenly, Donna (56) passed away at home. I was shocked to say the least, only seeing her two weeks ago. I thought at first, heart attack but Donna was quite ill and didn't let anyone know, choosing to suffer in silence.

Rest well, dear Donna, you will be missed by all.


  1. So sorry for your loss. Its nice that you were able to have this visit with her. I'm sure it meant alot.

  2. Gosh Julie; feel so sorry for you and indeed for her family....such a young age. Just two weeks ago a young 55 year old member of our community died of a heart attack. Just dropped dead as she was outside chatting to a friend and her husband. Life seems so cruel sometimes.
    Take care and treasure the time you had with her last week.

  3. My deepest sympathies on the loss of your friend, Julie. How nice, though, that you had the chance to spend time with her recently. Remember those good times.
