So sad to see of Don's passing. I remember he and Jo in the Husker Wings and the fun times my husband and I had with the group. I ran across the 2000 membership list the other day and thought of trying to find where you were. We stand strong and are comforted in knowing that those who have gone on before us are in our future. Caring thoughts to you at this time!!
