Oh dearest Carol. My heart aches for you. Yet. I am strengthened knowing Don believed in Jesus Christ. Losing Mom in July, 2015 allowed strength in my faith to flourish more than I could have known. To be away from the body and at home with the Lord is what Don chose. I will be in Michigan for the month of August. Mae and Ken Zimmerman know how to contact me should you have a moment. Warmest blessings dear friend. Denise Daniel
