Dear Grandpa, I remember when we were little, you would take us to the highland games. March and participate in the festivities, I still love the that I got to wear a kilt. Going to long point every summer with the family in toe. Exploring your huge backyard, Playing ice hockey out on the speed. Hanging out at your house waiting for Adam, Chuck, and Matt to get home from school(sorry jess you weren't here yet), eating wild raspberries and hanging out with your dog, Yoshi(Blue). Thank you for being the kind man you were. Grandma is waiting for you with open arms. Goodbye Oldman.

My sincerest sympathy to everyone in Cambridge during this difficult time. Uncle Don, you will be missed! I'm grateful for the times I got to spend with you (even if they weren't often because of distance). Always lots of talk about books, movies and history. Engaging and genuine conversations! Lots of laughs the last time you visited Calgary. I will also never forget you scaring the heck out of me as a kid, lol! Rest well, be at peace. Stop by sometime. Much love to you xoxo.
