I’ll never forget the love and support I received from Don while being “a part of his family” for a time. He was always incredibly kind and loving. The love that his kids and wife had for him was palpable and undeniable which is only due to the amount of love that he gave them. I am happy to have gotten to know him when I did.
My condolences to the family. I love you all.
