  11. I married into this “family” and Don was one of the greatest gifts I got. I loved his smile and his humor. Don and Cynthia always made me feel at home and part of the family. I love each and every member of this family and my heart is saddened at this time. I was blessed to know and enjoy Don’s loving company. I will miss seeing him.

  12. Don helped me too many times to count with paint and carpet choices for my interior design projects. He was always interested in helping me find just the right products for my work, and pleasant to work with. He was a gentleman of the highest caliber. We will grieve his loss, but have comfort in knowing that he is in God’s Kingdome.
