Dear Glen, Tracey, & Family...
Sending our deepest condolences on the passing of your Dad, Don. He was a great guy and will be missed. Bill says it seems like yesterday that they worked together at Ledwith's -- it was in the 60's. May you be comforted by memories of happy times spent together.
Sincerely, Gail & Bill Currie

So sorry to hear about Mr. South. From running through the fence between Elmwood and Bell St to seeing him in the stands at the rink watching his grandkids, he was always smiling and friendly. He'll be missed.

Loreen, Cathy and family,
My deepest condolences on the loss of your husband and father. I worked with Don for years at Maplehurst, and he was one of my most favourite people in the world. He always reminded me of my own father. We shared many laughs, and he was always such a gentleman. He will be missed.
Know that he was a lovely man who was liked by all.

Loreen and Family,
Please accept our most sincere condolences. Words cannot express how sorry, shocked and saddened we were to learn of Don's sudden passing.
Don had a Special place in our hearts. We moved to Milton April 8, 1975, on April 10, new to town, with encouragement from this man at the meeting, who turned out to be Don, we volunteered to help 'save the Milton Girls Softball League'! Thanks to the warm, friendly welcome of the Souths, Fitzpatricks, Blairs, Watsons and Wilsons, we became Miltonians that evening!
We partied hearty on many evenings over the years, some remembered, some not, but, we share lots of happy memories from those early days, which will be remembered always.
Bill and Sharon
