My Dear Friend of 44 years whom I met after I was transferred to Houston TX from Cincinnati, OH employed by Johns Manville Sales Corp. Don was helpful in being a big brother to me and my family while we got settled into our new home and job in Houston. 44 Years our friendship lasted
while I was transferred to Dallas and San Antonio.
Don was the best friend I made in Houston and we continued our friendship throughout the years.
I'm sad to just learn about his passing today thanks to Denise calling me back to advise me of this. I was trying to call Don to advise him of a dear friend of ours who passed this past Monday morning, 8/20/2018, Stella Anderson.
I offer my deepest sympathies with a heavy heart to his family on Don's passing. Dear Lord May Don Ret in Peace, Amen
Thanks for the wonderful memories Dear Don & Betty and you becoming my adopted family.
Love & Hugs,

Rocky & Lisa Miele & family
