At 4 years old, I was the flower girl at Don and Shirley’s wedding. I spent a lot of happy days with my Uncle and Aunt in the houses they rented in Toronto. When Paul was born, we grew up like sister and brother. I was devasted when they moved back to Nova Scotia but I knew it was the place Uncle Don loved. He has left me with many happy memories and I will cherish those. Sleep in peace Uncle Don.

Dear Mrs. Baker and Paul,

I was saddened to read of Don’s passing. I’ll miss seeing him and Scamp visiting the bookmobile. He was an avid reader who kept my mind active trying to come up with books he hadn’t read before!

Find strength and love from each other…
