I was saddened to learn of Don’s passing. It was my privilege to sit with him on the board of North Wellington Health Care where he represented the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation. His love of our local hospitals was always evident as was his charming smile and engaging wit. My sympathy to his family. MaryLou Brown.

Dear Harriet I was so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He was always kind, with a wonderful sense of humour. I have fond memories of him from the days you both owned the bookstore in town. I will miss him, his visits at the library and his insightful book chats. Praying for comfort in this time of sadness for you and your family. Lucy Kraemer
