Many memories of weekends at the farm enjoying card games or just enjoying time setting on the porch enjoying nature and a cup of coffee with Don. I enjoyed the stories of his fishing and hunting trips with Don, Jr and friends. I will miss his smile as he talked about the successes of his grandkids and his affection for his beloved cats Lucky, Lill and Liz. I am so blessed to not only to have had him for a father-in-law but also as a friend. Prayers for the family in their time of loss.
