I met Don through my friendship with Denise. Once you met Don and his open, loving spirit, you never forgot him. The obituary so beautifully conveys Don's full life of family, love, humour, service and sports! What a gift he was to those he came in contact with and the world is a better place because of him because he inspired others to be as open and loving as he.
I'm sorry I'm not able to attend the services; peace and blessings to Diane, Mark and Denise.

God Bless the man who shares !! Coach Don always shared his Time !! Hope to see you in another place and time...At 3:30 Coach

Don was a good man. I will miss him greatly. Peace and love to Mark and Denise. Don is in my prayers.
