I sat in front of Don and Karol for years at Silver Sneaks and only today heard of Don's passing. He was always in good spirits even when he had his health problems--a real inspiration to me. My wishes go out to Karol and the extended family. He was a true friend--he will always be remembered.

Karal, Maybe you remember me from silver sneakers and the contatas we attended. You and Don were always special to me. You and your family are in my prayers. Remember I go to Temple United Methodist Church and would love it if you could visit sometime. Love and God bless you.
