Oh my goodness! Where do we start? Don has been a great friend for many years and we will miss him dearly! He was always there to help me at South School and if he couldn't help, he'd find someone who could. We loved to tease one another and his name for me was Big Foot. May the Lord bless Donna and the family as they begin the journey without Don.
Blessings for comfort and peace,
Debby & Dick

I will miss my little “squirt”. He was so fun every time he came into BRC the last several years. And then just coming in for haircuts. Will never forget his love for potato chips and Pepsi and oranges and chocolate! He will be missed! My prayers for the family, asking God to give you peace and strength in this difficult time. Love, Mandy (the girl with the crooked smile)
