Creating a Legacy for Joni

“Joni was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s. As the disease progressed, it was heartbreaking to watch. She had such a love for life, and so much talent and beauty. To lose a bit of her every day was devastating.

“I’m confident that RVH will make every dollar of my special gift count.”

Don Saunders

Leaving a gift in your will is a highly personal decision, there’s no doubt about it. For me, the donation is a reflection of my values – of Joni’s too. And, I’m confident that RVH will make every dollar of my special gift count. I trust them to carry on my legacy and care for the people of Simcoe Muskoka.

Most importantly, I know my gift will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of others. And that’s something Joni would be very proud of, as a tribute to our love story.”
