Dear Eric and Pat, I am late in writing this, but I only just found a link to allow me to do so. Donny was so very important to both Caroline, who was his babysitter, and to her daughter Meg, who was encouraged to join MC4HF&D by Donny. Meg still treasures the drumsticks that he gave her. And so although I'm not sure I ever met him, he has been important to me.

My heart reaches out to you. May his

My sincere condolences for the loss of Don. He'd made quite an impression on us at the BCC Library. His warmth, kindness, intelligence and humor will be greatly missed.

Pat, there are no words of human comfort right now. I am so deeply sorry. I am praying for you guys continuously. I am praying too that God would use this to bring many to Christ Pat, and that God would give you palpable peace.

Much love, David and Jennifer Brock, (Andrew and Laura too...)

Dear Eric and Pat,

Mark and I are so sorry about Donald's passing. We are praying for you and your family.

I will always remember seeing Donald play at the Fife and Drum Muster in Sudbury. I was so proud to know him, and attending that event became a tradition for me and friends. Every time I see a fife and drum group I think of your precious son. Now he will play forever in God's kingdom.

May the comfort and peace of Jesus be with you!
Monique and Mark

Eric and Pat,

I'm so sorry to hear about Donald's passing.
I remember him much younger, from years ago when he would join you two in pro-life witness on Saturdays at the clinic.
If I have the math right, he must've been around twelve or thirteen.
I remember he was attentive and observant beyond his years, and unlike most at that age he would really tune in and pay attention when the grown ups were talking.
It's good to see this recent photo as

The loss of Don is truly a great loss for the whole world, for the gift he would give it.
His Love and his Wisdom will yet be felt forever.

Dearest Eric and Pat,

I just read the information on Donald's life. What a tribute he was blessed
with so much talent and he used it wisely. He did give value to other lives with
his abilities. What a wonderful smile a handsome young man.

He is at rest with our Father in Jesus name Amen Amen.
Thank you both.
Thank you for your time and Love each Sunday to everyone.
With the upmost respect and LOVE Joan Mackey
