Hello Marg:

So many great memories of our great times together at Burke Street. Don's laugh and smile were infectious. I will always remember the great logging truck ride with Don in Quesnel. Don will be forever missed and always in our hearts.

Love from Andrew & Valerie

Marg - Colleen & I are thinking of you and remembering Don - always upbeat, always welcoming, and another of the wonderful in-laws who have enriched our family. I remember when you visited us when I turned 60 - he interacted happily with people he had never met before, not only the relatives, gracious and fun. He was a warm-hearted man, which we could see in his affection for you, and his gently funny stories of long-haul trucking that we so enjoyed. I hate losing the good guys, but I'm grateful for the ones I've known. That was Don.

Love from Carl & Colleen

I remember attending a Vancouver South NDP BBQ in your townhouse yard that Don and Marg hosted. Wonderful welcoming hosts! Time passes by, but it is always sad when a loved one passes away. Cherish the memories.

We were sorry to read that Don has passed away. Although over 30 years have passed since the Limewood days we still remember the Block Parties and good neighbours we had there. We often forget how much older we all are. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.
