I have known Donald since about 1943 and learned a lot from him about fishing and hunting, one time I remember I was walking behind him hunting and some how my shot gun went off and luckely the shot went off into the ground behind his feet and I never forgot how close it could have hit him. In about 1945 Don and his mom took me with them to Tofte in the boundry waters for a vacation fishing it was a good time for a 13 year old. I’ll never forget him and his family they were very good to me when I was a young kid I hung around there farm a lot, good memories.
