Pat - May God grant to you the peace that only He can give and may you lean on Him for the strength you need during this difficult time. My deepest sympathies to you and your family

John 14: 1-4
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

I love Uncle Don and will cherish the many memories I have of him.
I hope you can find comfort in knowing that he is at peace.

So shocked and sorry to read about Don's passing. I worked several years with Don at the Green Giant Company and Murray-Hett Food Brokerage Company. Had lost contact with Don for many years. He was a good person and I truly always enjoyed Don's company. May Don's soul rest in peace. God bless his earthly family.
