Donna and family,

I learned of Don’s passing through the Rimbey Review. Needless to say the news was a bit of a shock.

Don ( and you ) were a few years ahead of me in school. While I thought nothing of it at the time, Don along with others provided the inspiration that those behind could make it through the education system. All that was needed was a bit of effort.

Bill Thompson.
