Ron, I am so sorry to hear about Donna's passing. Keep those wonderful memories to help you through this sorrowful and forever after. I have always kept the two of you in my heart and mind. As if it happened yesterday, you helped to go our best in the round dance activity. We were nervous but we certainly appreciated all the help you gave us to improve our way of round dancing. That taping that you took of us dancing in your home is still fresh in my mind. Donna is now in a place where there is no pain, and, no suffering. She is at rest. Ron, you now are placed in a journey in life that has made a turn in the road. Take care, Ron.
Peace with you, Ron.
With sincere sympathy,
One of your former Round Dance Club Members, Lorraine Kozera

Message from CueSteps Round Dance Club February 25, 2021
The Members and Instructors of CueSteps Round Dance Club (in Calgary) wish to pass on our deepest condolences to Ron and his family. In 2008, when Ron and Donna moved to Medicine Hat, our CueSteps Club was created to enable the Babas to continue their dance lessons in our City. Many of our dancers well remember the fun times of learning to round dance with the Babas. Over the next ten years, they continued supporting our Club. During that time, their commitment and dedication resulted in them making nearly 300 lengthy commutes to Calgary, each including 1-2 overnight stays. One of our members summed our feelings this past week, when she sadly commented, “She (Donna) was a much loved teacher at our Club for many years”. We are greatly saddened at her passing. Our heartfelt thoughts and sympathies are with Ron and her many loved ones as they face the difficult times ahead.
In memory of Donna’s life, CueSteps is making a donation to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
