Memorial Message

For my husband Don and son Bryan Gainer

A wonderful father and son were tragically taken from us on July 23, 2000 while on their way home, after a lovely weekend at the cottage of friends. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you both and miss you beyond words. I feel very lost in this world without you. All of our family and friends of all ages miss playing games and sports with you, working with you, sharing jokes and secrets. You were 2 special guys that we could all trust, depend on and love.
