  3. Donald was a very dear friend and had been since the age of 6. We had a very special relationship. I was so lucky to have a friend who was so sweet. He was a caring, generous, loving person. When I would visit, he would go out of his way to show me a great time. He took me all over NB.. We drove the coast stopping at all the beautiful churches that Canada holds. He took me to many places in Canada to see it’s beauty and then feed me all the seafood I could eat. We laughed and cried and and sheared our dreams for the future. I didn’t live close, but when we did get together we always found fun and laughter. You are at peace in the arms of our Lord now. I will miss you, my friend.
