My life has been so blessed to have such an amazing friend. It will always be dear to my heart the special bond that my Abigayle shared with " her Don". Every time they seen each other he was a greeted with a big hug as she squealed "My Don". We love him and are so thankful for the plan of salvation. Janet, Brad, Calvin and family, my thoughts, prayers and love is with you. I am here and willing to help in any way.
Don will be greatly missed. Rememberance of his warm greeting of "How are you my friend?" will continue to cheer our hearts. Our prayers are to God for comfort and greater assurance to Don's family of God's Plan of Happiness and that we will once again enjoy each others pleasant association.
Janet, and family.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Don. I have always considered you as family, even though we were only actually connected by love that our fathers had for each other. I wish we were closer to see you all again. Our prayers are with you.
