Andrea (Lindores) DiezynThough it has been many, many years since I visited your house on Normandy, I can still envision your dad smiling and proud of his family. Thinking of you Dawn and your family at this difficult time. May you lean on each other for support and love.
Kathy Brook FencottI was saddened to hear the news of Don's passing. When I think of him, I remember him running with Holly when she was young, cheering loudly on the soccer field, gardening or most recently walking....always with that smile. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts are with your family from Kathy, Dave, Sarah and Jacob.
Sylvie CharronDear Dawn, I was saddened to hear of your father's passing. Although we often think of ourselves as "big girls" and sometimes forget that Dad is a presence in our life, when Dad leaves, it creates a void. Only time will permit you to fully heal. Meanwhile, please be well. Sylvie
Lou CrowleyI have always felt incredibly blessed to have spent some wonderful times with Don albeit many years ago. Such a modest person who certainly had no reason to have been given his many accomplishments . He was proudest of his family . While never unsolicited , when asked he was very generous of his time in providing me with very thoughtful and wise advice. As spot on as his advice was , I think I learned even more from just watching his actions --- those of a truly kind , loving human being. Never the loud one but oh what a smile --and oh so many great laughs. Anne; Dawn; Adrianne and Holly -- I am thinking of you . Love/Peace Lou
