Hi Valerie and family,
It was so sad to read about Don in the newspaper. Our family fondly remembers such great times in Hockey we had with him and your family. Don was an enthusiastic leader and such a dynamic person. He will be sadly missed by us all. I wish you all well. When COVID restrictions end and you need some fresh air call us and visit us at the Winery. It would be nice to reacquaint. Best Wishes, Jamie
