My sincere condolences to Donald’s family. I was lucky enough to have met your Father on my frequent trips to see my Parents at Brookhaven. We shared an enjoyment of books on tape and would compare authors and plots. He was always a joy to visit with. I will always feel blessed for having had Donald in my life.
Our hearts are saddened that we will not be able to be there to celebrate Uncle Don’s life. He was a true follower of Christ and his life reflected his faith. We have been so blessed to have shared in his life. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family as we all will miss him. We know that he is completely healed and rejoicing with our Savior. Please be comforted by this thought.
Jim, Nancy, Doug, Mike and family
