PASSAGES | Don Papple

For many years, Don Papple was my brother-in-law. That changed a few years ago, but the precious memories we shared in the "good ol' days" still remained.

Below is a new Scribbles Video in honour of Don, who passed away Friday, February 8th at the age of 67.

As with past tribute videos for extended family members, there were a lot of photos and rare video footage for me to explore. This task always make me smile as well as cry.  There were many pictures and clips that featured both Don and our friend Bob Miller, who passed away last August. I never realized how often that amusing dynamic duo hung out, until I put this video together. Maybe they're reunited somewhere up in heaven, side-by-side exchanging tales and corny jokes.

Don's passing is another sobering reminder that life is precious and short. Be sure to live it to its fullest.
