Not sure what to say?

Dear Bernadette and family, We will always have special memories of very caring and generous person with a lovely smile on his face.
Love from Vonnie & Gary Morrison

So many happy memories. Butterfields days and exchanging all those plastic deer head barometers for me. Such a generous and loving man always with a great sense of humour, Don. You will be sorely missed.

Farewell,Don. You just the bestest. We can imagine the Angels Greeting.........'Welcome Home,Don.Just the man we need.We could use your advise for furnishing the Mansions'.

Thinking of you and the family,Bernadette. Much Love

Don and Karin Boot

My thoughts and prayers are with you Bernadette and your family. I know you will find comfort in each other.
Bernadette and David East

Have only recently met Don...often playing pool at Strathallan (while visiting my mother!) He seemed a great character, and was very happy to pass on his pool skills with our young sons, and to tell us of his days in business in Waimate.

Love and prayers to you all. Don's ever present smile always made my day when I would see him in church. He would always make me feel welcome. Thinking of you all at this time.

To the Simpson Family
I am sad to read of Don's passing.
I have fond memories of Don at Butterfields (I worked for The Timaru Herald Advertising Department back in the 1980s) his quick wit, great sense of humor, kind heart and the love for his family.
I shall raise a beer to you Don.
Rest in Love.
Deborah Humphries (nee Stocker)
