    Dear Nancy and Family,

    My deepest condolences to you all. I have nothing but wonderful memories of Don, both from our time in Capreol and the years spent in Toronto together. Don will always be fondly remembered for his smiles and great sense of humour. He was an individual who was always there for you when the chips were down and would support you at any time you needed him.

    May he rest in eternal peace. Goodbye my friend. Till we meet again.
