Mary Lou,
We are so sorry to hear of Don's passing. There are so many wonderful memories of golfing at the Ozarks to eating lunch at Honey Baked Ham with you both. Love having some of his cartoon drawings and will cherish them forever. He will be greatly missed and we will keep you in our prayers. Love you.

Dear Mary Lou and family,
We are saddened by the news of Don’s passing.
I always enjoyed talking to him about his KState sports days. He was always a sharp and friendly man who had much love for his family.
Fondly,
Teresa & Dave

Dear Mary Lou, Dave and Doug,
I am so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. So many great childhood memories growing up with the Stevens family a few houses away. The Mercer family was always excited when the Stevens family was getting a new car because we anxiously waited to purchase their impeccably maintained used car!
I was going through some correspondence my mother kept today and found a sweet letter from Mary Lou.
My love to you all during this difficult time.
