Nadine, Donna and Bridget. My sincerest sympathy to you on this great loss. I have wonderful memories of the great times we spent together when Don and Kenny worked together. They are probably having a drink together right now!

Condolence from Margit MacCharles on August 1st, 2019 7:08 am

To Nadine and Family I extend my most sincere sympathy at this very difficult time.

Nadine, I am looking at the sympathy card you sent my Dad and I when my Mom passed away. It was “Footprints In The Sand”. Inside you wrote that your thoughts were with us and shared memories of when we were neighbours in River Hills. You told us my Mom’s suffering was over and that ours would lessen with time. You said “memories will always live on”. Your card brought us so much comfort which is why I have kept it all these years. The thoughts you shared are my wish for you. I hope that your memories and the life you shared with Don for 50 years will give you strength and peace in the days to come. You are in my thoughts. Take Care.

Margit MacCharles (nee Kunz)

Our family wish to say thank you to all who have given us their support, especially during this highly emotional time.
We appreciate it all. It means so very much to us.

I now know he has, and will continue to watch over us as we struggle to go on without him.
We are all so very lucky to have had him in our lives.
He suffered with pain for such a long time…and now he is free.

Thank you from Don’s family
