I am saddened by the passing of my friend, mentor and fellow officer, Don. He had a wicked sense of humor, a stern work ethic and a heart beyond measure. He most likely forgot more than I will ever know about our job. Ginger and Don were a match...a perfect match. If you looked the word love up in the dictionary, it would say "Ginger and Don". I had a few times of need and looked up to see them, helping at my house fire or the death of my mom, they were there offering support, a helping hand or just a shoulder to lean on. He was that kind of person. Never had to ask he just did what came natural to him. He loved his family...and that family stretched all over the state and beyond. Yes, Don was a man that could be counted on without
seeking reward or recognition. Rest easy, you have earned it and then some.
