Condolences to Aunt Gene, my cousins, and their families. Uncle Don was a very special man. I remember going to visit them (not as much as I should have). Don took me down to his fish pond, and you could tell how proud he was of it, and how much he enjoyed it too. He has such an interesting life history, from hunting, trapping, living in British Columbia, being in the Korean war, etc. I’m so glad Darren and I went to visit him recently. He will be missed for sure.

Hi. Sad Uncle Don is gone for now. I will never forget the time I went to Cumberland Bay from Ontario for a week in winter and Uncle Don took me with him for a day to check his trap line. Traps were all empty but he laughed and told stories all day. Thanks Uncle Don! Shawn Phillips.

My husband and I wish to express our condolences to Aunt Jean and my cousins. My heart is hurting with and for you. Don will be greatly missed. I appreciated the warm welcome he and Jean always gave me when I stopped by to see them on visits to NB. Always thought he was so handsome with his white hair and beard. Hugs to you all.
