Joyce and I shared many fond Memories with Don, Renee and Ronnie. One was their visit to our Home in Washington, D.C. We had a great time until Tracy my Daughter crashed the family car into Don's brand new vehicle. But Don's reaction was what we all remembered. He said to Tracy, "Its just a piece of metal, no one was hurt, don't cry about it". A very caring person. Wish we could be there for Renee and Ron, but Health issues prevent that today.

Knew Donald well during High School, but like so many of our 90 classmates we lost contact with him over the years. We send our prayers to the family with fond memories. I personally played football with him, but he mostly ran with the farm boys.
