My heart is breaking for the loss of Don. I will miss talking to him and seeing him. He would walk Buddy all the time. He will be dearly missed!
My prayers and thoughts are with his family!

I am so saddened to hear of your passing. I will always remember the laughs and the talks we shared! Talking about the cruise trips we had taken and walking our dogs Buddy and Layla. I will miss you! Love your friend Marina

I'm so saddened by his passing. He was a great man! We go way back to the post office days, almost 20 years! He was always so nice and willing to help. My truck got smashed by a contract driver once and he got all over that lady for not even slowing down when she backed up. Then helped me get it towed and then took me back to work! He and all his kind gestures (that he did for lots of people) will be truly missed. Heaven indeed gained a great angel!
Rest in peace, dear friend.
