Mark,

I had heard your Dad died, and I am sooo sorry... I know several months have passed, but I wanted to say how sorry I was... I really enjoyed hunting with your Dad. Don was a real friend to me and when I first moved to Charlotte in 1983, your Dad and I started "Bird hunting" together a lot and we had many many days afield.... I drove by the old home place a few months back and wondered how he had been doing.... I still remember hunting with you and your Dad in Kansas around Pittsburgh so many years ago, seems like yesterday. Hope you are doing well, again so sorry for the loss and apologize for taking so long to reach back out to you and the family.

Mark,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. Don was an amazing man....always made me smile. But I know you have great memories of hunting with your dad in Kansas. He always had a smile on his face and something completely unexpected to say. He will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We are so sorry to hear about Don. My husband and I lived next to him in Mint Hill for many years, and he would bring us items from his garden. After we moved, my father and his wife moved into our house, and would enjoy having him over for dinner. We always made a dinner plate for him every Thanksgiving and Christmas. He will be greatly missed! - Delores & Steve Pickett

Condolences are extremely difficult to write, putting thoughts on paper, but just know, Mark and Nikki, that Don is smiling down on you, appreciative of the care that you gave him. We feel very fortunate to have known Don for the short time we did, and are comforted knowing that he is at peace.

My condolences to the family. We have all suffered a huge loss. 'Donnie' was a good friend for over 60 years.
