Such a beautiful couple who created a wonderful family. Anyone who knew Donald Kalal most likely has a special memory of him. My husband and I were honored to have him sing at our wedding in 1973. We send our deepest sympathy to our classmate, Rich, and the entire family.

I will miss you, Uncle Don. I will miss your kindness. I will miss your humor! I will miss your angelic voice as you sang The Lords Prayer! Or any song! I will miss hearing you harmonize with your family. What a gift you were! What a legacy of love you leave in your beautiful family! Rest In Peace. I love you.
