  • Hello heart goes out to you, and, to your family. Harvest Lane, our start together, was that 1963 or 64 ? It was a wet and somewhat snowy spring. Don, Heather you and me, what great days, afternoons and evening, we had a wonderful time. Although we left Harvest Lane at Christmas 1971, we kept our contact record intact, you and Don when passing through "down east", and we, when back in Winnipeg. I know you share my memories, I really liked Don, a great friend to me, professionally and personally. But on we best thoughts are with you, Cam - Posted by: Cam Roylance (Just a good friend ....) on: Sep 04, 2013

  • Dear Pam and family, We are so sorry to hear about your loss. There are no words for losing a husband after all these years of marriage, and to lose a parent and a grandfather. We want you all to know that we are thinking of you and hope that the memories you all have of Don will help you to get through this sad time. With much love Marja and David Ranson - Posted by: David and Marja Ranson (Family) on: Sep 03, 2013
