Sweet Nannie, Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to you and your family during your time of loss. My acquaintance of Don was when I went to breakfast with my mother and Nannie at the Cracker Barrell. The joy and laughter was brought on with Don teasing me about my grits. Good ole hominy grits is the best, he said, with a smile from ear to ear. We laughed and laughed. We began talking about cooking and baking. He talked about his good ole oatmeal cookies he makes, as the smile on his face was so proud. The next time we met, he said follow me to the car, I have something for you. He pulled out an oatmeal box and handed to me. I looked puzzled and replied, oatmeal. He laughed and said go ahead open it. To my surprise it was a box of his oatmeal cookies. The joke was on me. What precious memories of laughter he gave me. He was a person of love, joy and laughter to all. You will be missed dearly .With all my love, Velvet Pendergrass

Nannie, Sending my condolences to you and your family with deepest sympathy as you remember the precious memories of your lost love one. The joy Don brought to lives will not be forgotten, but stay. In hearts as awesome memories. My most rememberable memory was when I was first introduced to Don at the office where Nannie and I worked together. He came walking through the doors carrying his great granddaughter with a smile from ear to ear. He stopped in the middle of the floor saying " Showtime " The joy and laughter on his face brought smiles to us all, as he showed off Kailee. He was a proud grandfather. Then after I retired, the adventure of the Cracker Barrell was the meeting place, as Nannie, my daughter, myself again enjoyed his joy and laughter over a good ole country breakfast. The fun he had teasing my daughter over her grits. You haven't had grits until you've had good ole 'Hominy Grits" girl and laughed and laughed. Awesome time we had. Loved it! Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. He will be missed. With all my love, Virginia Pendergrass & Velvet Pendergrass

Uncle Don was one of a kind. There are so many wonderful memories of spending time with Don and Nancy throughout the years. He was a Mr. Fixit, a "put it together" kind of guy. We usually had something for him to fix, hang, paint, etc. when he and Nancy would come visit mom and us.
Don was an "expert" potato peeler! This past Thanksgiving (2020) He educated his great-nephew Caiden on the fine art of peeling potatoes with a knife. That is a memory (and skill) that will last a lifetime. He always had a funny story to tell. We always had so much fun when we all got together. He will be missed so much. I'm so glad that his great-nephews had a chance to get to know Uncle Don and his big "tickle hands". When we were kids, he would tickle us too, with Aunt Nancy saying, "Don't hurt 'em Don!!!!!". As we all laughed and tried to get away. Rest in Peace Uncle Don.... and check on Dad in heaven for us! We love you.
