My deepest sympathy to Doug, sons, daughter-in-laws, grand-childrens, nieces, nephews and families.

I knew Doug and Brenda in the late 60´s and beginning 70´s in Camp Bouchard in Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec.

Recontacted Brenda through social media Facebook. I was amazed by her strength and courage prior, during and after her transplant.

She will greatly be missed.
