Sally, it wasn't too long ago that you and Don were 'regulars' at line dancing in Solon. Even though I was new, the both of you made me feel welcome and I will never forget that. My deepest sympathy to you on his loss---it is also everyone else's loss, too. God be with you in the coming months.

My heart is filled with sadness for your loss while I rejoice with you for your husband is with the almighty where we will all be one day. He will be waiting for you and is celebrating his new pain free, everlasting life. It was fun to see Don and you this winter in Florida. Had hoped that this was a beginning of a new stage of our friendship. Don always had a joke and a smile for everyone he met. This I will always cherish about him. You were blessed to have been married to him for so many years. The wonderful memories you must have! God Bless You. Love and respect - Nancy Gordon

So sad to hear of Mr. Muntz's passing. I really liked him. He was always happy when I would see him out in the yard in Aurora. Rest in Peace Mr. Muntz.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Muntz was an awesome Guy. From taking my baseballs that would enter his front yard as a child, to the long talks at the end of his drive way about anything and everything. Sir you will definitely be missed! My prayers go out to the Muntz Family. - your old Neighbor.

John Muntz is a good friend of mine, and his father Don, from the few times I met him, was one heckuva man. R.I.P.
