We are very sorry for the loss of your husband, father grandfather and friend. He was a great man. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say about everyone. i loved to sit by him at the family gatherings. he never complained but only once. He was a fine example of a Christian man. He and Joyce were always at Anya"s doings no matter what. Rest in Peace Don. You are very deserving of it. Fly high with all the angels. Peace to your family knowing you are now pain free.
