After a very merry Christmas and several days of spending time with his family, Granddad Don passed away peacefully in his sleep. We are grateful that he was able to be here with us and to meet his great-granddaughter, and that he was able to end his very full and loving life on such a positive note. We had a family memorial service here at our house last night, with a dinner full of his favorite foods, a bar full of his favorite drinks, and a slideshow of pictures from throughout his life. Lots of fun stories and memories were shared, tears were shed, and way too much food eaten...it was a night to remember and a fitting tribute to a much-loved father and grandfather. Rest in peace and God be with you til we meet again, Don.
