Condolence & Memory Journal

From 16 to 30 years of age I was loved by Don as Duk's girlfriend. He was a big influence on me as he loved me dearly and his family and dogs. But Charlotte was the love of his life. Browsing to find wher they lived and saw he has moved on last February. Love and blessings to the family that loved me!
