Farewell to a wonderful friend and benefactor


We are grieved by the death of our friend and benefactor, Donald Horne. Don discovered the joy of giving later in life and quipped about how his heart would grow a little more with every donation.

Don brought an exuberance to every gathering. He was the life of the party at his recent 95thbirthday, moving around the room and sharing stories with his guests.

Don never had his own, but was generous to any cause that would benefit children, including the endowment for children’s health that he began. We are so incredibly thankful for the legacy he lovingly crafted in life and we are honoured to have spent time at his side witnessing his generosity in action.

Godspeed, Mr. Horne. May you know only the joy and ease you have brought to others.
