I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Don and wish to express my deepest sympathies to Aunt Alice, Uncle Roy and families. I will always remember Uncle Don with his big smile and always having a joke or a funny story to tell when he would visit us in Ontario. He will be missed by many big hugs to everyone. - Posted by: Brenda Roloson (Niece) on: Jan 16, 2022
