Donald was born in Atlee, AB., on May 30, 1926, to proud parents, Edwin and Leone Pound.

Miss Molly Friesen

It is with a broken heart that I announce the passing of my faithful companion, food tester, napping buddy and co-pilot. Anyone that had the good luck (or not) of meeting Molly will probably remember her most from her bad breath and of course the licking (always with the licking) and being so damn cute! But I shall always remember her and smile. For all the happiness that she gave me everyday. Even though she shed all over everything, hogged the bed, was bossy and a complete menace; I love and will never forget you. Thanks for
sticking with me. Rest peacefully in the sun! Thank you to her step-family the Doll's.
