Condolence: I have been sadden to read of Dr. Bartlett's passing away. He was one of my teachers in Springdale. I found him to be an honourable man, firm and kind. I pray for the comfort of his family during their time of sorrow.
Condolence: Joy, Trevor, Robyn & family. We were saddened to hear of Don's passing. He will be missed! We hope that you will find comfort in all the beautiful memories he has left with you. We have pleasant memories, especially ones of our visits to Rattling Brook & the card games!
Condolence: Dear Joy and Family. My condolences on the passing of Don, even though he lived a wonderful life, I'm very sure that there will be a big void in your life. Please remember that we will keep you all in our prayers as you go forward. I will never forget Don, may he rest in peace.
Condolence: I send my sincere condolences to you all. Don always made me feel good in his presence. I witnessed his positivity soothe cranky souls. I was blessed to not only have him as a family member but also as my English professor at MUN. I remember my papers covered in red ink. He challenged his students to be better. When my father passed, he took care of things for me at MUN, so I could return to school. I will never forget that. Kind, beautiful man. Thank you, Don, for your wisdom and for your love for all of those lives you touched.
Condolence: My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Bartlett. I was a student of his in many courses in the 1980s. Dr. Bartlett was a terrific teacher, serious, challenging, focused on each student's strengths, thoughtful,warm, encouraging, kind, funny and fair. To this day, whenever I hear the term 'story line', I can hear Dr. Bartlett's voice, 'Story line is not a literary term, common usage does not make it so!' He also frequently encouraged us to look for the character's 'badge', in his distinctive voice, with a sustained stress, 'baaadddgge'. He was a gentleman and a scholar and I shall always remember him. May he rest in peace.
