Missing you DR!!! Several times today I wanted to pick up the phone and call you to vent, only to have you tell me to stop being dramatic. Thanks for being a loyal friend, thanks for never getting in a hurry and forcing me to slow down. So thankful for times we shared an office (really closets), thankful for your messy desk you’d leave for me to clean and thankful our paths crossed. Miss ya man!

I looked up to Don, figuratively and in reality. He had the best hair and eyes in high school and he loved to laugh. He also enjoyed music and I remember that he was fun to be with. Don will be missed and I will always think of him smiling.

Don and I were classmates from 5th grade until high school graduation. One of the great memories/experiences with Don was back when we were in 10th grade, we both got to go on a great canoe expedition for a week with about 15 other students. While so many of us were complaining about the conditions (raining, lousy food, chaos most days on the river), Don always had a smile, just happy to be out in the wilderness camping and soaking it all in. His outlook on life was so positive.

I’ve worked with Don for about 6 years. It was always a joy to visit with Don. Everyone liked him, his easy personality and willingness to help. I’ve thought of him often since learning of his illness and have been including him and his family in my prayers. He will be missed.

I first met Don in the summer of 1997 when joining Mercy at St Edward Mercy Medical Center. I worked with him on a daily basis for nearly three years. He was always very willing to help in any situation and always had a smile on his face. He was a big Sooner fan and I loved to talk sooner football with him. I am greatly saddened to hear of his passing. His smiling face and positive attitude will be greatly missed.
