  4. Hi, Donald,
    I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I was unable to attend the viewing as I was in Canaday musky fishing with my Dad. I still remember you telling me about you and your Dad catching muskies using night crawlers and sucker/chubs. I was thinking about that just this past trip. I hope you are well. I am very sorry for your loss. I always liked your Dad. Best wishes.
