Dad was the strongest person I know. Many times in my life I would think, how would dad handle this and it would give me strength. He was loved by his family and respected by everyone he met. His love for life and exploring new things inspired all of us. We will miss you Dad. I will continue to use your strength as inspiration. - John Charles MacDonald

Dear Wendy and Family,
We are all greatly saddend by the loss of Colin. He was a mentor, an example of a gentleman, a great golf partner (my all time favorite), a man of great integrity, and many other inspiring things, but mostly he was a great friend. Our lives are now a little less full and less fun, but they are better for having known him.
God bless you,
Brian & Cheryl

Dear Wendy,
We were so saddened and shocked to hear of Colin's passing. What a dear man he was. Always with a ready smile and a great laugh. We always think of him as just one of the most intelligent, cheerful and kind persons we've ever known. You were such a devoted couple. I remember going to lunch with you Wendy and since Colin traveled so much, you always had your phone ready to take his calls. Our thoughts are with you as you navigate your future without Colin at your side. Your sons and families are a wonderful comfort we're sure. Love to you all, Mary Lou and John.

Wendy,
I've thought of you many times since getting the news about Colin and hold both of you in my heart with great love.
"For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breathe from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then shall you begin to climb.
And when the earth claims your limbs, then shall you truly dance."
Kahlil Gibran

Tony and I are deeply saddened to learn of Colin's death. He touched both of us in many ways.
He gave us "The Pillars of the Earth" and France. Oh, what a time we had! Toulouse, Carcassone, all of Paris, especially Lasserre! Because of our time together, we have and always will carry you both in our hearts.
These words from the poem "I Am" speak to us of Colin. "For I have looked at life with love and loved each part of life that I did see. Now everything that has touched my heart the precious time that I was here, is part of me."
Please be comforted by knowing you both are thought of with great affection.
Tony and Cinda

Reading this list of praise filled words is truly inspiring and a testimony to the fact that leading a life filled with everyday greatness can inspire others. We should all be so fortunate to be remembered with such love, admiration and respect. We were blessed to have Colin's inspiration and we can continue to be inspired by the lessons he provided per the exemplary live he lived.
We will miss you Colin

To the Colin MacDonald Family:
As I read over the many messages that were sent to you, tears came to my eyes and yet, when I thought of Colin's smile and wonderful outlook on life, I was able to smile, too. As many of his colleagues know, Colin was the epitome of a gentleman, colleague and friend. I feel so thankful that I was able to work with him and take comfort in knowing that there is another "guardian angel" watching over us. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Know that he is in a better place and will always be with you. Just look within. God Bless you all. Jean

To the MacDonald family, I am very sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you. I've played a few rounds of golf with Colin over the years and the two things I remember most; 1) he sure could it a golf ball a long way but he always encouraged me, a golfer not even close to Colin's ability and 2) how he spoke with so much love and sincerity for his family.

Dear Wendy & Boys, I am so very sorry. I have been at such a loss of words to express my sympathy. I was privilaged to witness the True Love & Friendship Colin shared with Wendy. He was such a great dad to his boys and they had so much love and respect for him. Please know Wendy that you and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless, Love, Becky

The first time I met Colin I was both impressed by his intellect, and inspired by his personality. He truly was a man who lived by 'The Golden Rule'. I will miss him. (It is so hard to find someone who is so thoroughly better than you at golf, but never makes you feel inferior.)

My thoughts have been with ever since I came to know, through Andreas and Barbara, Colin' struggle.
Although our professionnal lives have guided us to different paths,I will never forget the good times I had the pleasure to share with him since that day of October 1990 when we met in France on one of his trip back from South Africa when he took over his sales responsabilties in Europe.
Always smiling, always capable of defusins any situation with his legendary calm and ponderation.
To Wendy, his sons and grandsons and granddaughters, be sure that where he is now, with our Lord, a bright and shiny star has borne in the skies and will continue to illuminate your lives, dedicated as ever to your love and your guidance.
Let the the strength of his rememberance and the power of your believes help you in overcoming your pain...

What I remember most about Colin was that he was always there to help. He was never to busy to lend a hand and no matter how much he had on his plate he never complained. I don't remember ever hearing him say that something couldn't be done - he always found a way.
We counted on his knowledge, experience and good common sense and it is sad to know that he will not be there to guide us in the future. He was a true professional and will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Wendy, I have thought of you so many times this past week. I hold you in my heart and surround you with love.
Such is Dying

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads his white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. He is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch him until at length he hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come together.
Then someone at my side says:

"There! He's gone!"

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. He
is just as large in mast and hull and spar as He was when He left my side and just as able to bear his load of living weight to the place of destination.
His diminished size is in me, not in him; and just at the moment when someone says:

"There! He's gone!"

there are other eyes watching him coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout,

"Here he comes!"
-- and such is dying.

Dear Wendy,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss.
There aren't too many things in life of which I'm entirely sure, but I know that your toughness, resourcefulness, sense of humor, family and abundant circle of loyal friends will help you through your time of mourning.
Please don't hesitate to call if I can be of help.

Dear Wendy and family, Colin was a man who left an impression. I recall the first time we met and thought after chatting "what a warm,considerate,sincere and wonderfully dignified man". I'm so sorry for your loss. Words seem so weak at this time. Please know that you are loved as Colin is loved. I wish you well and send my prayers and thoughts in this difficult time.
God Bless.

Wendy,
Please know that Ann and I are thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Colin was always there to help work though any challenges that came my way and or to just talk about music or car racing. For that I will be forever grateful. Colin was not only a mentor but a great friend as well. He will be deeply missed.

I was sad to here of Colin's passing;I had been talking to him since last march about his condition and treatment. I was getting ready to go in for the same operation and wanted his input, he was very up beat and gave me hope that everything would be ok. After my operation Colin told me that his results had turned for the worst and that he had about two year's at the most. He said he was going to fight it till the end, but nobody now's when the end is. He was a great person and I am going to miss his encouragement and upbeat attitude. If I can help in anyway let me know,

Colin is a wonderful soul. The day without him is missing some of its cheerful words and a loving voice. Wendy, you and he created the most wonderful family. He continues as a warm feeling in many hearts. Aloha

Dear Wendy,
Our thoughts are with you and the boys as we grieve the loss of one of the kindest men and best neighbors we've ever known. Even though Colin was often traveling, his strength and wisdom somehow emanated from your home. It has always been a comfort knowing he (and you) were right there across the street.
Even through we've known for a long time that this day was coming, it still comes as a shock, as we know it has to you. Colin will definitely be missed on East Manor Drive!
Please let us know when you'll be coming home and anything we can do to be of help when you get here.
Again, we send our love and care.

To the MacDonald family, I just want you to know that during the chemo times Colin still put on a smile and a positive attitude to all around. I will rememeber Colin as a very nice person to work with. I always felt better after being with Colin. It was also my pleasure to meet his lovely wife Wendy many years ago at a Christmas party. I was also fortunate to meet and work with Stuart. I sure could see a lot of Colin in Stuart. The way he worked and the way he treated people always making you feel like you are important. I just want you all to know that you are in my prayers during this diffcult time.

Always a smile and a cheery "hello" is how I will remember Colin. He will be missed by everyone who knew him and is an inspiration to us all for his good-natured, happy personality. Our prayers are with you.

Dear Wendy and family. Colin is an old friend of mine from college days in the UK. We had a lot of laughs together and I attended his wedding to Wendy, while he and Wen reciprocated in my first marriage. We met up again in South Africa and after that, more or less lost touch, until he 'Googled' me a couple of years ago. I am very saddened to know that I have lost a good friend. Wendy, be strong, call me if you ever need anything. Love. Mel
