In December of 2017, I met Don at Bricktop's Restaurant in Franklin, TN. He was one of the first people was who introduced me to my new circle of friends, aka "The Good Time Gang". This was during an extremely challenging time in my life. Don was always so kind and caring. Even though he had more than his fair share of difficult times, he was positive, willing to listen and share his perspective on life. He made me laugh; he made me smile; and I just wish that I could hear him sing to me one more time. I am so grateful that he was a part of my life. Even though I only knew him since 2017, Don brought joy to my life and made a lasting impact that very few people ever will - even those that I have known far longer.
Love you Don,
Sandi L. Pack

Don always put a smile on my face and made me laugh! I will miss him dearly. We used to joke about him being the Dos Equis man ("The Most Interesting Man in the World"). Don almost had me fooled once it was actually him. Riding his donkey home and living in a cardboard box were stories he made up that were so funny. Everyone sincerely loved Don! He blessed so many people's lives and touched hearts and souls. I will cherish the memories of Happy Hours and time spent with him. Sending love to Tammy and family.
