What a friend we had in Don!
He was my Masonic brother and a real mentor. I will remember all that he gave me. If I were to tell you about Don with one word, that word would be Integrity.

My deepest sympathy goes to the Anderson family. Don was a true patriot. He was the secretary of Georgia Masonic Lodge #96 for many years. He was the Master of the Lodge and the Director of Works. His knowledge will be greatly missed but even greater loss will be his brotherly love and friendship.
