It was with great sadness and shock that I learned of the passing of Donna Walker, an insurance professional for whom I had the highest regard and respect. I join my family and the entire team at LMI in offering our sincere condolences to her family and colleagues.
After founding LMI Group in February 1999 and heading the company for just over 20 years, I have elected to step aside and let the next generation take over in the full knowledge that the organisation is in good hands and the values of compassion, family values, tenacity, and above all, utmost good faith are embraced wholeheartedly.

After only about 1 1/2 hours sleep that night I posted a quick note on Facebook with a few photos. The response I received was a complete surprise. There were a few common themes.
