So many great memories of Don. Thanksgiving was always special because our family and his always had Thanksgiving together. It was great to be able to keep in touch with him via Facebook. A recent memory was driving from Texas and when I arrived, I posted that I had just arrived. Almost instantaneously, Dom msgd that they were in Clearfield and having ice cream and invited me to join him, Cindy, and Alicia. That was so much like Don. He always wanted people to feel welcome no matter where he was. He was much more than just a cousin. He was my friend and I will miss him so much. RIP Don.
