Sally and JohnWe were lucky to have Don and Jean as neighbours. They were warm and welcoming and loads of fun. After Don passed away, we continued to cherish our friendship with Jean. She was quite simply a one-of-a-kind, a once in a life time friend. A wise, witty, kind, caring, smart, classic beauty. We celebrate a life well lived, and send our sincere condolences to Donna Jean and Jim, and to Wendy, and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren.
