Trust fund for author's 4 children

Friends at the Regina Leader-Post have graciously set up an education trust fund (accepting donations until May 15 at CIBC branches in Regina) to assist with the post-secondary education of the four children of Ron Petrie, humour columnist and author of Running of the Buffalo - or Ru as he called it (because all famous authors have abbreviated names for their many good works, he joked). Ron passed away in February after a year-long battle with colon cancer. Details of the trust fund are in this Leader-Post story.

We miss Ron every day, but the humour and goodness that he added to the world and the good that will come from this trust fund will live on.
