I knew Don for about 2 years and considered him part of the family. My heart breaks that my mom no longer has the love of her life with her, but I find comfort in knowing that the time they did have together was joyous beyond belief. I will miss Don so much. Thank you to all my friends who have sent their good thoughts, wishes and prayers to our family throughout Don's illness and since his passing. We appreciate it more than you will ever know.
