Condolence Messages

  1. Janet and Wade, please accept my sincere condolences at this difficult time. My heart just sank when I heard of Donald’s passing. Although it was under difficult circumstances, I enjoyed the many hours that I got to spend with you all. Janet, you and Donald shared such love…….it showed in the way you held his hands so lovingly and the way he smiled back at you. I will miss seeing you both every Tuesday and Thursday. Take care.

  2. Thank you so much Leanne for your condolences and your kind words. I admire you – you are such a special friend to Russell and his family and so good with his roomy and tablemates. Thank you. My “life routine” is so in shock without Donny. I am wound up, consumed and very busy with Saturday’s Celebration of his Life and I am fearful of the crash thereafter. Hope to see you on a Tuesday or Thursday some time down the road.
    Janet & Wade

  3. Donny will be in our hearts and minds forever. We loved him and will miss him always. With love to Janet and Wade and all Donny’s family.
    Dot and Gordie Harty & family.

  4. Thank you Dot & Gordie & family.
    He is gone and no more daily visits at Hawthorne. I am lost without that structure in my life.

    So sorry for your loss Janet & family. I grew up in Hammond & knew his family as a young teen. “The best things in life comes in threes. Friends, Dreams & Memories.” Take care….
