In life I have met few people who come across immediately as kind and loving, Donald was one of those rare persons. Although we only spent time together a few times he was fun, interesting and so so kind to me. My wife Cheryl and I loved him so from afar and we will miss the chats and his company. My deepest condolences to Mary Richard and family. RIP dear Donald. Mark Grewcoe
