Uncle Don was one of my godfathers. We loved to visit him while vacationing. This is a photo from a 1993 visit to Don’s Vineyard. He was a fascinating conversationalist, with a deep love for history. Before I had my throat operation, I had a week with my uncle where we shared deeply about life in Christ and John 15.
I thank God for our wonderful parents Ted and Lorna Hird who recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. This was taken at Christmas 1995. I am so grateful to have loving parents that believe in me.
My late Uncle Don (& Myra) Allen started up a Vineyard on the Westbank of Kelowna, after retiring from the Navy. During the War, he was a Deep Sea Diver. I had the privilege of taking his funeral, not an easy thing to do.
It was great for Andrew and his brothers to be able to spend time with their Great-Uncle Don and Great-Aunt Myra in Westbank, BC.
Uncle Don loved to sit outside on his porch on the beautiful summer Okanagan days
Uncle Don, with my sons, loved to learn and pass on his learnings to others.
