To The Family,
You have my deepest sympathy and know that I share your grief. Donald was one of my very best friends for over 50 years. We especially enjoyed fishing, scrapping and just hanging out having a 'Cold' one. Rest in peace my brother until we meet at that big lake in the sky. Miss your company already.
