    I knew Don most of my life and he was a good man, a hard working man always thinking of others. He suffered some hardships, as most of us do in life and I was happy for him when he met Juanita and his life seemed good again. He will be missed. May God help Juanita, Jeff and Angie bear their loss and help them remember he loved them and he suffers no more!
