    Julie and I would just like to say that Don was one of the most Godly men there was. He was there for us when no one else would. He helped by whatever means he could. Thank you Lord for this man that was a great mentor and friend!

    Don was a wonderful person and father-in-law. Although I did not get to see him and Mary much as they lived far away, the times with him were always very special.
