Vivian, Chance, Jacelyn, Janaya and your families. We were shocked and saddened by the news of Don's recent passing. We have many stories we share when it comes to Don coaching the kids and his infectious smiles and laugh. Yes that is how we first got introduced. I (Brenda) spent 15 years talking to Don on the phone multiple times a day while at work buying steel from him. He always brightened my day with laughter. He was a great Dad to his kids and all those children you used to babysit Viv! He told me stories about loving to come home from work be it lunch time or later...and always have a lap full of children which he so much enjoyed. Yes....Don will be missed dearly by all that knew and loved him. Words alone cannot begin to express our sorrow. Greg, Brenda, Chris and Kim Goran.
