Sad news
« on: July 28, 2015, 03:48:07 PM »
It is with great sadness that this will be the final post from Don's administrator account. Don passed away peacefully at home with family on July 26, 2015. There will be no further posts on this website after this one.

I know Don was very fond of all his friends online and he will be missed. The family has asked me to let everyone know that he wished for donations to KW Humane Society in lieu of flowers. He will be put to rest at Erb & Good Funeral Home in Kitchener, Ont on Thursday, July 30, 2015.

Thank you for all you have done, Don and God's Speed.
Good, better, best.
Never let it rest,
'til your good is better,
and your better best

Oh no, I'm really sad to hear this. Don was so encouraging and enthusiastic here. He made new people feel really welcome, and his kindness will certanly be remembered. I am so sorry he's gone.

Very sad news, about a good, online friend.

May he Rest in Peace.


Strange..... I was only thinking, he'd been quiet recently.

He was very supporting, behind the scenes. When I was a new, fumbling Moderator.

Turns out this life c**p is just one big distraction from death but a good one. For the love of god dont give yourself time to think.

I was just looking at Dons last post stats and it is no surprise that each one is abundant with similes. Don was always encouraging and interesting and I have always enjoyed his posts. You will be missed Don.
