  2. Please accept my humble condolences for your loss. I will never forget how Don would take us golfing when we were very young, and how patient he always was with us and our terrible golf swinging. He took us to all of the golf courses in Calgary and, over time, we saw some improvement in both our long game and our short game.
    I have never forgotten Don ever for both his patience and also his kindness, and I know he fought a courageous battle. He will be missed throughly and persistantly but…….never forgotten

  4. Brooke, Brett and families,
    It has been over a year since we lost Don and I still miss him and think of him often. He was a kind and caring neighbor and friend and a proud father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Those of us who knew him were blessed to have been friends with a man “well worth knowing”. I hope you and David are golfing up there… the view must be wonderful.
