Although I never met Donald, the winkle in Pat shoffner's eye when she spoke about her Dad and shared their times together was a tribute to a father and daughter who loved each other. May these memories always remain until you meet again.
Love to you and your family, Pat.

I was so very happy to reunite with Uncle Don after over 40 years. He had a beautiful heart and was a phenomenal story teller. Love you Uncle Don and I will miss you.
I included a picture of him from his Navy days with Grandma Edna and Uncle Roy.
