Dad, you gave us the JOY of the simple things in life, growing up on the farm. We each have so many treasured memories, and our values, characters and lives have been shaped by this blessed childhood you gave us.
We’ll miss seeing that twinkle in your eye and wondering what you are thinking of next … looking forward to finding out one day!
Thankyou also for pointing us towards an even greater eternal JOY to look forward to. Psalm 100.
With greatest love always Paul, Evan Belinda and NatalieFuneral Notice

Dear Jeanette and family,January 10, 2021
I was saddened to hear of Donald’s passing. What I remember of Donald was his enquiring mind, intelligence and his gentleness. A happy time for me was coming to your farm for dinner and afterwards sitting around the table and doing puzzles. A perfect photo was chosen, with “that twinkle in your eye and wondering what you are thinking of next”. Donald has left the farm and gone home. He will be remembered in many, many people’s hearts and memories.
I send my heartfelt condolences to you and all your family.
Sincere sympathy Jeanette and family.January 11, 2021
