Dear Heather,
Liz and I enjoyed our little chats with you and Don on our many walks to the supermarket.
He certainly loved his manicured lawn even to the extent of pulling out those pesky weeds one by one with his tweezers.
You will miss him the same as I miss my Liz.
My condolences to you and your family.
Take comfort in each other at this sad time.

Dear Heather and Family - so sorry to read that you have lost your beloved Don. I have lots of fond memories of times together at the After Hours Surgery. He was always willing to help us and would do any task that was sent his way. Thoughts with you as you grieve and remember all your happy times together. Farewell dear Don. I will buy an Owl to add to my collection and will call it "Donaldo". Love MLF xx

Many happy memories of Don when you guys lived over the fence in Lagan St. So very patient with us Rusbatch kids coming over to get milk tokens or always hitting balls over into your garden. Or even in later years when Barney the cat would let himself into your place to hang out with Thomas! Was lovely seeing you guys recently Heather, Don was a true gentleman and well remembered. He will be having a beer with Barrie and Jocelyn now. Sending all my love and best wishes to you at this sad time.

I was so sad to read of Don's passing today. He was such a valued colleague and friend when we worked together at the After Hours Surgery in the 1990's. We had many a laugh and he was such great company on shift. He was kind and caring and would do anything for anyone. He will be greatly missed. Fly High dear Don x
