Don 11 years ago you left us. Our world was a sad place without you The Lord needed an exceptional angel. He found one in you. You were a true man of God with an unbiased heart. Always something kind to say or do, never a cross or mean action on your part, regardless of others action's. We need someone like you down here to spread your love and kindness. It seems like such a short time ago, these 11 years have passed so quickly. The world isn't doing good since you left.
God bless you, be with God I miss and love you. Kay

Don, Happy 99th Birthday. It seems like such a short time since you left us. Still remember Sunday afternoon when you'd come over to dad's house and I'd give you dinner. That was such an enjoyable time, listening and watching you and dad light up when you would talk about old times. Hard to believe mom left in '07, you '08 and dad in '09. Definitely a great loss for me but a blessed one for the lord because he received 3 angels in 3 years. I know all are saved and without any worry or sickness. But it still leaves an empty place in my heart. You were a God's blessing on this earth and a greater one in heaven. God bless you.

Hard to believe it's been 7 years. You were a part of my life because of my dad. Dad gave you your first job when you were fresh out of the service. He didn't need any more employees, but after you came back for the 5th time, he decided if you were this determined you might just be the right guy for the job. That was 1945, you were the right guy, as you and dad were close friends for the rest of your lives. Now You, Flo, Dad and Mom are all together happy, laughing and smiling as you all sit with God . Love you Don
