Our condolences to Debbie, Treena, David and Joey and your families on the loss of your Dad, Grandpa and Great-Grandpa. I remember first meeting Don and Shirley around 1952 when they were dating. They were visiting Mom and Dad at our Army temporary married quarters (Windsor Park, Halifax). I remember seeing Uncle Don as the "friendly giant" (there's a photo somewhere) and my Dad wondering when they were going to get married ( '56?). Anne and I have fond memories of visiting your family in July 1970 and enjoying your great hospitality just after our wedding in Winnipeg. Our prayers are with you and we hope that July 11th will be a special day of remembrances gratefulness for a life well lived.
PEACE Joe & Anne Nordin
