    I would like to offer my condolences to Dons family. I used to love going fishing with Don. He was part of the Global Donut Crew for many years. I’m sorry I never realized Don was in the Palliative Unit here in Sarnia. I would have tried to get to see him and maybe give him some company. My thoughts are with his family. God bless Don and my he Rest In Peace.
