  1. Mary, I remember your Dad well. He was a nice (and funny) guy. Due to my work schedule, I won’t be able to attend either the viewing or the service. You and all your family will be in my prayers.

  2. If wealth can be measured in love, hugs, kisses, friendship, and tons of laughter Don will be leaving this earth a millionaire.

    Love, your friend Jo

  3. To Uncle Don, family was everything. I take comfort in knowing he is now with those he loved very much, and that someday we’ll join him, once again, as a part his family.

    We’re sorry we can’t make the service, but please know you are in our hearts and prayers.
