Helen and family,
Was sorry to hear about Don's passing. My memories however of Don and you all are still as current as yesterday. The fun we had playing cards and Don's quick wit and happy full of life attitude has always been an encouragement to me. I never saw Don when he wasn't the most pleasant person one could be. My greatest sympathy to all of you.
