I wish to send my condolences to the McDonald family. Austin helped us numerous time on our hog farm, by doing chores for us when we were away for a few holidays. He was always so dependable. We never worried about things when we were away. He shared many stories with us & we always appreciated his humour. He touched many lives & will be missed. Sincerely, Joan Zettel
