We were so sad to learn of the passing of Mr. McDonald. He and Mrs. McDonald lived in our cabin in Due West while building their home there. We all loved spending time with them listening to stories of the "big city" and loved them veery much. My boys, about 4, 9 and 10 at the time, often requested to go visit with Winnie Wink (don't remember how they came up with that nickname) and Mrs. Ernestine. They were an asset to our community and will be missed.

I am so sorry for the loss of this great man. I knew him first as my boss @ N.Y. Life, and later as a close family relation. I have many fond memories. Some include bbq's in E.Northport, as well as many happy times, gathering together in Stroudsburg, Pa. He was a kind and gentle man. My condolences to all his extended family.
