One winter morning I saw a strikingly handsome man standing in front of my shotgun double, gazing at it intently. We struck up a conversation and Donn told me he had lived in my house a long time ago and had many happy memories of those times. I felt such warmth and goodness coming from him immediately and so I invited him in, and he proceeded to tell me wonderful stories of his times here and how the back yard used to look. Donn is someone you felt an immediate connection with, so open, so generous-spirited. My house was on his walk to work when he used to work at the Healing Center, and we shared many moments exchanging greetings of the day and chatting. I did not have the chance to know Donn well, but when I saw him he always brightened my day and made me feel lighter in spirit. And what a smile! He is dearly beloved by all who knew him and we shall miss him.
