The whole McAlister family has always been my second family. We loved Don dearly. We are praying for Barbara, Paula, and Vicki. I know he, Burl, Maymie,,Mac, and Lee and Ruby are having a grand time remembering and laughing at all the fun they had through all the years. Dad was Don and Burl's scout leader. I would love to see you all again some day. All my love! bitty
