    My condolences to the Gosnell family. I have many childhood memories of Mr Gosnell and Gwen. One of them is making homemade ice cream . My favourite memory is listening to Tom Jones “What’s new pussy cats” I hope you get comfort from great memories.


    Sending our deepest sympathy and love to Joan, Steve, Sandra, Duncan, Chuck, and Liz. Life seems so rough at times, but our fondest memories of Uncle Don will live on for our lifetimes. We also know how he loved each family member and grandchildren, who have had the experience of knowing Don, and being influenced by him in many ways…knowing this, his life continues in a different ways. May each day surround you with pleasant memories!

    With fondness,
    Lynn and Paul


    My condolences to the Gosnell family. Don was a beloved principal of New Richmond High School. His dedication to his students extended to tutoring me in Algebra so that my matric scores could be improved – to even the playing field with the boys who were better in Math! A feminist before it was a popular thing to be! I have never forgotten that act of kindness and caring.
