Dear Ed & Family,
I grew up seeing Don around our house often. He was the best friend of my Mom & Dad,Jake & Virginia Goodman. Now they are all together again in heaven. Don was a good and honest man. Quiet and with a good sense of humor with an impish smile. My Dad and Don had a great love for photography and traveled together occasionally to photograph their beloved covered bridges all over the north east. He will be missed in this life. Our condolences to you and your family.
