We are saddened to recently learn of the death of Don Grant. Don and Ron were childhood friends and maintained that friendship for many years. We last had dinner with Don in Ottawa in 2010. He was an interesting and busy man. We so enjoyed our conversations with him. Our condolences to his family and friends.
