    Dear family of Don, you have our deepest sympathy. I just wanted to share our experiences with him before we moved to St. Michael. We bought our home not knowing much about the town. I made a phone call to Don (about 32 years ago) and told him we were moving to town. He spent at least 15 minutes telling me all the good things about the town and making me feel very welcome and excited about moving there. I will never forget that.

    To all of you – my deepest sympathy. I can remember all the times Don came to my rescue whether fixing something or his wonderful words of advice. He was the epitomy of a strong, deeply compassionate and loving man. I will miss him and have forever been touched by his soul.
