Dear Lori and Family,

We're so very sorry for your loss of Don. We lost track of your whereabouts and had no way of contacting you. We still hold the great memories close to our hearts of the boating days at Seneca Lake. We had so much fun back then, it was a shame it all came to an end. We hope the memories that you created help to heal your broken hearts. May Don rest in peace and God bless his soul.


Jessie, Linda & Bob
