RIP Uncle Donnie fondly remembered by Melodie Juergen and Jens
I was very fortunate to have spent some time getting to know Uncle Donnie on my visits to his home in Vancouver a few times over the years and going down with him to his local pub for a couple of beers. He was a good uncle always remembering our family birthdays mine as well as my children, Caroline and Kyle. It was a tradition of his to send birthday cards with a money order included also at Christmas time which was greatly welcomed by us up to the age of 18 which was his cut-off age. He will be remembered fondly by us rest in peace.
