"Just a message to say how much I miss my dad while we are planning Randi's wedding.  He would be so excited and silly. It's that silliness in the midst of a stressful thing that I miss most of all.  To see that grin just one more time...I can't wait. :)"

"Happy birthday daddy! I miss you so much."

This tribute was added by Lynn Nordquist on 23rd December 2013

"Uncle Donny was the best uncle I could have asked for. He was always ready with a hug or a joke or a sassy comment made with that twinkle in his eye that said, "I love you."  I remember when my sweet grandma died and I was so sad.  After the funeral I saw Uncle Don in his coveralls and when I asked him if he had some work to do he told me that he was going to tuck Grandma in one last time. I felt so much better knowing that Uncle Don would be helping lay her to rest. He has always been there to help out our family. I miss him very much but can see his smile so easily if I close my eyes. Love you always Uncle Donny."

"I miss you, Daddy.  I was truly blessed to have you.  I see kids everyday who don't have what I had with our family, and I realize what I took for granted.  You were my dad, my guide, and my friend.  Enjoy Christmas with Jesus.  I love you."

"Words can not express how much I miss you. Thanks for all the memories. You were a very special guy and I love and miss you. Molly"

"It has been two years today.  In many ways they have gone so fast.
I still  remember every second of this day that year.  Such a sad
time for all of us.   Have a wonderful Christmas singing with the
angels.  Wish I could be with you.   Love you forever."

"Christmas will never be the same without dad.  He created so many wonderful Christmas memories for Mom, Jo, me and our families.  He touched so many lives with his strength, humor and love.  Wish he was here for our sake but he is spending Christmas with Jesus...pretty awesome!  Forever missed and forever loved!"

This tribute was added by Kathy Aho on 16th December 2013

"I remember you playing volleyball in Mom's front yard in town with the other uncles and the kids.  Maybe it was Mjyke's graduation, I don't recall, but I do recall the complaints afterward about sore muscles in a few day.  I get it now, unfortunately!  It's the little memories that time let's take over.  They sneak back at unsuspecting moments and make one laugh or cry or both.  Each is precious, Uncle.  All yours have little smiles attached."

"I agree with mom. :)  Christmas will never be the same.  I try to be "merry", but, GOSH, it is hard without you here.  We will make it a good one, though, I promise..."

"When I went to church Sunday I was very sad remembering your
funeral service.  The church is so beautifully decorated for Christmas
just as it was on December 27, 2011.  Sure wish we could spend
one more Christmas together.  I put a wreath on your grave in
remembrance.  Love you forever."

"Our family was blessed with so much love.  Uncle Don, you have always been a part of our lives since i can remember - from the time you stayed with our family when i was very young...to being there for Mom after our Dad died, for us when Mom passed away...and throughout my adult life.  Even when you were sick, your love and humor still showed through.  Thank you for being such a wonderful Uncle.  You are missed more than you could know."

"Wednesday was Randi's birthday.  She is 21 already.  She misses you so much, Papa.  We all do.  This is a hard time of year.  I remember just how sick you were, and I am glad your suffering is over, but I wish you were here to hear all my stories about my students and tell me how blessed I am to have them."
