I was blessed to have Don as a big brother. He was always my hero growing up. I think my best memory of my big brother was watching him practice his martial arts, kick a hanging ball, brake a piece of wood with his bare hands. To me he has always been so strong, so brave, so amazing!! I love you big brother .. you will always be my hero!
