Dear Barb, Jeff, Sheryl and Lori,

Please know that we are thinking of you at this most difficult time. Thanks to the Lammer family we had the good fortune of meeting the Bergquist family many years ago. Whenever we gathered it was always a good time had by all and usually lead by Dan! Thanks for the memories Dan, we will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Don was such a great guy to be around, both at work and all the other times. Most of all, if there was a bright spot to be found in the middle of tough times, Don was it.

Barb and kids. Sheryl and I are deeply saddened and so sorry to hear of Don's passing. It appeared that my work got in the way of us staying closer after Don retired, but I often think of him and the fun times we all shared with our summer outings to various golf courses.
His name popped up many times in the industry when we spoke of the good times, the good old days, the deals made on bar napkins ,(a deal was a deal with Don....integrity first), golf, and gin rummy. We always discussed how much our IQ's went up and how much our looks improved as the evening got longer. (He and Jim can now pick up where they left off)!!!!
We will miss him, we miss you, and please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Barbara, Myself and Aedin were deeply shocked and grieved to hear of Don`s sudden Passing.I counted myself lucky to be one of his friends.He truely was a gentle,sincere and kindly man. We always enjoyed our Sunday morning foursomes together and will sadly miss them.Barbara, Don loved you and his Family very much and always spoke of you with pride and honour.Although your loss is great you must gain consolation from the fact that you now have strong and protective friend and advocate in Heaven. Today we attended Mass in our local Church and prayed for strength for you and for Don`s safe and happy passage to eternal life in the presence of God which he so richly deserves. Friday morning golf at "The Island" will always be "The Berquist Group" for me and his many friends.May rest in Peace. Hugh and Aedin

Sheryl & Family,
Words cannot express the sadness I feel for your loved ones loss. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but their love leaves a memory that no one can steal. Just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.
