  1. Dennis and Terri Moro and Family :

    Heartfelt condolences to the family of Donald Fraser. I had the opportunity to work with Don at the Air Transport Department at Esso Resources Canada Limited during the 1980s. Some great flights were accomplished and I flew with Don on his retirement flight with the honorary bagpipe team piping him off the airplane. GodSpeed Don.
