My sincerest condolences for your whole family what with the recent loss of Don.  To Debbie and Paul and all your children I simply wanted to say that from all the stories Deb has so lovingly told over the wonderful years of our friendship,  I've felt like I've known him and his loving and kind heart for the last thirty years.   I've always admired and appreciated your dedication to your father Deb and I know how much he'll be missed.   I wish I would have known him better and am honored to have met him the couple of times I did.  Dance, dance, dance!

I have never met your father but learned of what a great father he had been from his daughter as she was preparing for his memorial service. 

Sincere condolences to your family.

To the family - you won't know me but I used to live beside Eldon Bonnett on the farm. He spoke of Ruby frequently. So I feel I kinda know you and was sorry to read of your loss.  Living beside Sam Bonnett I knew the Bonnett families and knew who Archie was. Just a loyality to pioneer families who are thinning out on boundary between Bruce and Kincardine Twp.

Dearest Ruby & family,

Meeting Don over a 6 year employment time at Malcolm Place, is one of my most treasured memories. His 'prankish' banter and wonderfully unassuming character was so naive and precious. Ruby, always routinely faithful and loving, visited very regularly, often bringing a lunch so they could lunch together. Don will be very missed by many friends and staff. I am truly sorry for your loss. 😍

Our deepset sympathy to all, on the pasting of Donnie. God Bless.
