I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Don. His motorcycle, giving us a ride across the water when we were at some park, his movies (Super 8?) and watching them on a white sheet, his banjo playing with Uncle on the guitar (maybe I have that backwards). He is now with my mom and dad and Aut Janice where they can visit and have all that fun every day!

My sympathies are with you Helen, Mike, Jerry and Karen and the rest of the family.
