    We loved Don, he was one of the best! We loved seeing him at lacrosse and hockey cheering on Brian and the boys! Distance keeps us away from the service on the 21st but you are all in our thoughts. Deepest condolences to Carol and family. We love you Kim.

    Dear Carol, Kim, Mark, Kaitlyn, Brian and family,

    Don was a great man and he will be terribly missed. I will forever have great memories of Don and his visits to Whitby to watch the boys play hockey. Any chance I could to sit down and have a beer and talk to Don was awesome as do not make men like him anymore. My sincerest condolences to everyone and please accept my apologies for not being able to make it personally to the funeral, however I will be thinking of everyone.
