Our warmest thoughts and sympathies to Pat, Doug, Kathy and family on the loss of Don. I knew Don from work at Norton in PA and NJ. Don always had the big smile and strong laugh. He was always kind and a friend. In those days we worked with a good crew of sales and support folks like Ian Smith, Fred Yardley, Lou Mayer, Cosmo Dattis, Cindy Putnam, Bob Johnson and Frank Krohn. I remember one year that Don played Santa Claus at our Christmas party. He was perfect. The children all loved him. He will be missed. Our deepest sympathy to you. Joe & Holli Paquette
