Our family made many summer vacation trips to New Jersey to visit Uncle Donald and Aunty Barbara. It was always something us Canadians looked forward to. It was a warm house filled with laughter, food, activity and family. Uncle Donald showed us wild boys what was possible in life. Special shout Aunty Barabra for being a part of all of these great memories, her helpful advice to my Dad on his own health, and looking out for Donald over the years. Shama and Danielle, Don was bigger than life, his impact was far reaching.
