Oh my heart is broken yet joyous, I can see both their eyes lighting up as they see each other again. My memories of Don are his spunk and his love for Anna. Love to the entire Grant family in their time of sorrow.
We are so sorry for your loss. We hope that in time memories will bring smiles. I think he always enjoyed getting the prize for being the oldest at the reunion.
We are thinking of all of you during this difficult time. Hope you all find peace in knowing you were always there for both your Dad and Mom. We have many special memories from when they were our neighbors in Hannawa Falls. Gordon and Phyllis Shimmel
