I met Don in 1994 we became great friends, He was my next door neighbor and there wasn't anything he wouldn't do for you. I will miss the summer days we would spend sitting outside exchanging stories of our time in the Air Force and having great laughs, he was truly a great friend and i will miss him and to the family please accept my condolences and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
