Uncle Donald,
I hope you’re with our dad and your parents and Leecha (sorry for the misspelling) having a great reunion. I will always treasure the memories of the letters we traded while you were stationed in El Paso...mine on paper, yours in the borders of newspaper pages.
Please give everyone a hug for me and let them and you know how much you all are loved and missed.
Debbie

He was a very nice man.
