    My favorite memory of Uncle Donald was when we were living in Cooperstown. Aunt Joan, Uncle Donald, cousins Barbara,Donna and Donald would come visit. Uncle Donald loved hunting in the woods on the farm. One Fourth of July he brought a wide assortment of fireworks. It was the biggest assortment you could imagine as a child. One of my brothers was around four years old and diligently put his sparkler in a box. The problem was he put it in a box with fireworks! Rockets, helicopters,roman candles , firecrackers, everything was shooting in every direction. Hit the deck! Best unintentional Fourth of July grand finale ever! RIP Uncle Donald.God Bless. Laurie (Keating)LaFreniere and family
