Dear Southard family,
It is with heavy heart that we learn of Don's passing. He was a good and funny man. He always had a joke ready for you when he saw you. We shared many a good time with Don and the Southard family. Memories like those will never be forgotten. Blessings and sympathies to you all.

Uncle Duck I always looked forward to when we'd get together because you'd have me laughing the entire time with your stories and jokes. I appreciate you traveling hundreds of miles to be with us at my retirement party. It meant a lot.
Barb, Justine, Sherry, Brian, Don Jr and family may his memory be a blessing and I'm very sorry for your loss. Hugs to everyone.

My dear Uncle Duck:
You will truly be missed. I will miss the stories and the humor. You always knew that whenever we got together you were going to be sore from laughing so hard.
I believe that Dad and Grandpa were waiting at the entrance to Heaven with a beer and card game for you to arrive.
Barbara, Justine, Sherri, Brian and Don Jr.: My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. Love to you all.
