  3. Dear Dot and family.

    Rayna, my daughter , and I are so sorry to hear about Don. I know how much you will miss him. The last time we saw him was at Glyn and Ada’s last Christmas and Don talked with Rayna for a very long time. He told Rayna several times how the best thing that happened in his life was you Dot.

    I am so sorry I cannot be at the funeral. I have a flight booked that afternoon to go to Ottawa to see my other daughter and grandchildren. However, you will be in my thoughts that afternoon.

    Love Gerry Haythorne

  4. To Mrs. Wynn, Gary, Donna, Brad, Susan and your families I send on behalf of ‘The Moore Family’ heart-felt sympathy for the loss of Mr. Wynn. Living across the street from you all – ‘the Wynns’ – as I was ‘growing-up’ and then having a continued relationship with Donna (BFF of my sister Colleen), has meant a long relationship of caring for you all, despite my own absence and distance. I have many special memories of times shared with your family, in your home and in your yard; memories of Christmas on Candy Cane Lane, of Birthdays attended, of neighbourhood games played; and also memories of you Mrs. Wynn whose grenerous spirit and kindness was always comforting along with my memories of Mr. Wynn’s big personality and his amazing garage which always curious and intriguing! I know he will be greatly missed.

    May the strength of your family and friends help you each find comfort as you move through this complex journey of loss and the emotions therein.
