My condolences to the Macdonald family in Winston’s passing
To Winston’s entire family…my deepest condolences. He always greeted me with a warm smile and a “how are you doing,Tam.” I will miss seeing him on my runs to No Frills…and the corner store…as most times I saw him there. Winston was a tough character…with a warm heart. He was an important figure in so many lives and that makes grieving so tough. Know that there are so many wishing you healing, and prayers in the weeks and months ahead. Love and hugs, Tammy Tighe MacNeil
