Vicky,
Words can’t express how much your dad meant to me. I loved him like he was my grandad. Thank you for letting me love and care for him. He was always supportive to me, and such a wealth of uplifting knowledge. One thing I know for sure, he is in heaven with Margie smiling down on us all.
Prayers for you all! He will be in my memories forever.

Don and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Beaumont, and played many games together. We were also classmates at A & M in the class of '56. I ocassionally saw him at Aggie reunions, and am proud to say he was my lifelong fiend. Don was a good guy, and I will miss him. I do not ask "for whom the bell tolls," for I am part of that era also. Farewell old Aggie friend until "our next Corps Trip, aand I praythe Peace of Christ resides with you and your family.

Our condolences to the Viguet family. We were blessed to meet Don and Margie when we moved to College Station. We saw them often at women's basketball games and baseball games. Our four young children spent most of the games sitting with the Viguets, enjoying their love and kindness. Most recently, I had the opportunity to see Don on a few occasions and he always asked about the children (now adults) first. We have many special memories of Don.

We looked forward to our visits and going out to eat with Don. Our friendship began when we brought our lab to visit him at Blue Bonnet. It reminded him of his previous lab hunting dog 💖. Don and my husband, Bear, shared old Beaumont stories, gator hunting, and eating at May's on the Bayou and Dorothy's Front Porch. Don, we see you dancing with the angels and enjoying time with your wife, Margie. Our sincere condolences to his family.
