Memories Timeline


  1. We know a void has been created by your loss, but we hope that fond memories shared with family and friends can at least add some light to the darkness you may be feeling. You all are in our thoughts.

  2. Melody – your Dad was a pretty neat guy all around. But, one of the very best things about him was his unconditional and vast love for you. As a parent, that capacity to love so profoundly has been a model for me. I am grateful to have witnessed it before having kids of my own.

    You carry that capacity on in your own life. That is the greatest tribute to him. He will be missed but can be seen everyday through you.

  3. We are so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to his family. Pauline , we will miss all of the fun times at the cabin.

  4. Pauline and Melody,
    I will deeply miss my friend, yet I realize that your hearts must be heavy with grief beyond my comprehension. Know that Don loved you both, spoke of you often and always with a smile on his lips and a twinkle in his eyes.

  5. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Donald. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort ‘ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2 Corinthians 1:3
