    Dear Family, We were shocked & sorry to read of Don's death. 60 is too young to die. We were close friends in high school, but the years had drifted us apart. We haven't seen him in years. You have our sincere sympathy. We are praying for God to give you comfort.

       Don was a classmate at Towanda High. He was a sometimes part of our "gang" - Phil Schwartz, Ken Carle, Bryan Yoder, Mike Thomas.Even though it's been many years since I have seen Donnie, I always liked him and thought he was a nice guy. He is gone too soon - may he rest in peace.
