Mrs. Allen,
I was so sorry to hear about Don. He always brought smiles to everyone around him. I have great memories of spending fun times and laughter, especially around his old truck. It was his signature piece! He was a special person and I hope you find comfort in knowing he was special to so many.

Hi Mrs. Allen,

I am sad to hear of the passing of Don. He was always such a sweet and funny guy-always cheerful. Everytime I see an old truck, I think of him and of him wrangling with that steering wheel. I also see that he still had lots of hair! - one of the many things that was so attractive about him. I know you and your family and friends will miss him.
