My dearest Cousin Elaine and "Man",
My heart goes out to you as you go through this difficult time in your lives. Please know that God will sustain you, and this too shall pass. Don was a wonderful husband and father who enjoyed life and lived life to the fullest. He was truly a genuine person that had an infectious smile that would brighten any room. It seems that he never met a strangerAnd ALWAYS exhibited a happy demeanor and a positive attitude, even as he was battling that evil disease. My hopes are that you both will choose to reminisce about the pleasant memories of Don. Know that I will continue to pray that God will provide strength to you both. We all loved Don, but GOD loved him best. Always remember John14:1-6.
Much love, cuz!
