Pauline & Family.
So sorry to hear the passing of your father. Your parents visited us here in P.E.I. a number of years ago and have kept in touch with your Dad. I so looked forward to him sending a Santa or other item at Christmas which he enjoyed so much making.
When a loved one becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

The most loving and caring person.
He was always smiling.
When ever we finished a carving he was very appreciative.
The family will miss his Christmas
May his soul rest in peace 🙏

Uncle Don. Truly a kind, patient, and beautiful Man. I lived with my Aunt and Uncle when I was very young and never forgot the love that Uncle Don showed me. I am so happy I got to have a few more visits with him lately and even got a few cherished wood carvings fory Christmas tree. I know it was getting hard for him as he got more frail. Uncle Don may you rest in peace and enjoy the company of Aunt Anna. Until we meet again . Much love from your niece Beverley and Marc xo
