Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Now he is at peace and with his dear wife. We did not have the privilege of knowing him but do know his son Don and wife Jill. If Don is like his dad, then we know that he was a wonderful man to have raised such a caring son. If there is anything that we can do for you and your family, please let us know. Love from Jim/Kathy Higgins.

My uncle Don was a man of strong faith and love of family. That faithfulness extended to his unswerving devotion to Mary, his wife, and pride in his children. I am delighted that he is now at peace and once again at Mary’s side. Perhaps as we rejoice with them in prayer and thanksgiving for a life well-lived, we might also raise a glass of champagne in his honor! Love, you niece, Kate
