    I miss you everyday DAD. However, I know we all must go on until we meet again. We are trying, but there are times that we can not make sense of the situation. We are working hard to help other people from having to suffer such as you. I know that is what you would want. We love you dearly and will be with you when the time comes. Love, Donna, Gil, Julia, and Jack

    I never meet another man with such a strong presence, only to find he had the softest of hearts. Uncle Don has always held a special place in my heart....and he always will. My heart goes out to the rest of the family and expecially to aunt Carol. Please know that I am there in heart & mind and only wish you the strength to help you deal with your loss. I miss you all & will miss uncle Don dearly. Lovingly, I remain, Denise
