Thank you all for being such a wonderful family; our Grandpa will be missed but we are all blessed to have known and loved him

To the Middaugh family, I knew Don from volunteering at Munson. He always had a smile on his face. As he would take a patient out of the hospital in a wheelchair he say he had the best job being able to push people around and thanked for it! Such a sweet man. Jill Lueck, Kingsley MI

He has touched so many lives! I would see him at the hospital when he volunteered always with a wonderful smile and a hello! For many many years now my kids and I have christmas caroled at his house. We have always enjoyed it. This year we did the same and watched the enjoyment on his face. My 7 year old son remembers it and remembers him. When I shared of his passing my son was sad. May God Bless him and you all during this difficult time.

Your Dad's smile was something I looked forward to when he brought eggs to the hospital for us. We will miss him. I met him after he retired from his volunteer position.
My sincere condolences to your family.

Judy and family,
I am going to miss your dad so much but the memory of his smile, his hugs and my Tuesday morning egg delivery will be with me always. He has never gone a day without missing his beloved wife and now that smile has grown as they are together again. My thought and prayers go out to you all.
