Gail, Randy and family. We were so sorry to hear of Don's passing. I have so many fond memories of growing up with your family and happy times spent at Pelican Lake. The friendship my parents and you enjoyed has stood the test of time and distance. I know they have valued that friendship, and consider you family. Mom and I were happy that we could share in Don's tribute. It was clear that he is so well respected and will be missed by many. We hope faith and happy memories will carry you in the days ahead.

My sincere condolences to Donald's family and his sister Della. I remember having sleep overs with his sister, Pearl at the Foster home just a short distance from my home near Somerset, MB. Donald was a young boy at the time.
