Rest in peace now Don your daily struggle is over
treasured memories of Don my sister’s husband who is affectionately called “Gilly”. Always cheerful and a great sense of humour. Good hearted and willing to help anybody in need. Lovely memories when Gill and Don came to England in 1975 and stayed with me in Hampshire and how he used to tease my daughter Julie who had a doll for her 4th birthday and Don used to hide it from her. Made many friends in England and loved our local pub “The Green Dragon”. Loved by everyone he met. He will be sadly missed by us all. Sleep peacefully and now free from pain. God Bless. Jan, Julie and family and Andrew .June 18, 2020
