Don was a generous man, who was thoughtful, kind, and sweet. Wherever you ran into him he was always so happy to see you, and he always took the time to make you feel special. He was always pulling a prank or making a joke, and if he wasn’t he was telling you a million stories. He loved the tell stories, Even if he laughed so hard he couldn’t get any words out. Last year I invited him to my birthday party, and when he couldn’t come he bought me a cake, and threw me a little birthday party of his own. I remember when I was only dating Clayton for a very short while, and Don told me ‘he needed a picture with his future granddaughter’ he always treated me like one of his own, and I am so thankful to have been able to love him like he was my grandpa. ❤️❤️
