  5. Dear Don. So sad to hear you have passed. I will miss your warm sense of humor. We had many laughs & banter over the years. We never missed our two pots bet between your Essendon & Collingwood. I still have the green plastic piggy bank that you used to fill with 1 cent coins, just enough for two beers. The cheeky remarks written in texta have faded but the memories wont. Rest in peace my dear old mate. Sympathy & love to Don’s family at this sad time. Love from Jules xox (still waiting for the pink diamond) ha ha!
