We are so sad for Elizabeth and the entire family. Donald was a kind man and a good friend to us. He took Gordon golfing and they had a great time. Him and Elizabeth raised a wonderful son, Clark. Our son in law. He was so kind to our daughter, LaTrisa and loved the grandkids, Avery, Riley, Landry and Isabella, with a deep love. We will miss this wonderful man. Our prayers are with the entire family.

There is no way that I could describe how loving and caring my Papa Don was to me and my siblings and parents in one little letter. I hope that one day, I can become as loving to my grandkids as my papa was to me. I hope one day I can have a commitment to the house of God and the things of God as papa don did. Every time he would walk in the room it would be filled with love and kindness (unless it's a Denny's booth). He always would spoil us with things that we would never need, whether it be a new set of golf clubs for Avery or bringing us to a bowling alley every time we would come to visit. Anyways, I know that heaven gained a great member on Tuesday evening, and that Papa Don is in much better condition up there than down here. I will always and love all the memories we had together. I could never ask for a better grandfather, than Donald Ray Presson. I love you Papa Don.

My Papa is very sweet to me. Because every time we come to his house he gives me a kiss on my cheek . And he says "I love you ". And that means the world to me. He also is very funny sometimes. I like when all of us laugh and enjoy being there and know that Papa will always love us. I will miss him.
