I have so many wonderful memories of you...The many times we all went out to lunch, the birthdays and Christmases and church suppers. You always had a smile and a warm hug for me. I told you often that you were so much like my father and I guess I almost felt like you were my dad sometimes. You gave advice and wisdom without judgement and you always lifted me up. I cannot thank you enough for the things that you brought to my life, laughter and joy and love. I will never forget your smile and your gentle spirit. Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life I consider myself blessed for having known you and I will always love you my precious friend...Until we meet again

I will miss you my friend. Your warm smile and gentle manner was something I looked forward to every time the four of us got together. I will always remember the prayers that you recited at the many meals the four of us shared. You are such a good and honest man. Heaven is a better place today with you coming home. Rest in peace my friend, Yvonne and I will always remember and cherish the time that we spent with you and Anna Lee. Christmas will not be the same without our annual Christmas dinner at your house. I will think of you often. You are my friend and I will miss you. God Bless you Don.
