Martha, I am sorry to hear that you have lost Don. Just meeting him the few times that I did I was quite taken by his spirit of friendliness and love. Even though you no longer will have his presence on earth you will have the memories that the two of you were able to make together in the time you did share. God be with you and the rest of the familly as you grieve this loss.

Martha and family,
What a great gentleman. Even though we knew Don for a short while, he left a huge impression. Cherish the good memories and know that we are so sad for the whole family. We pray for contentment for everyone during this sad time.

Carl and I have known Don for many,many, many years - we bought insurance from him after meeting him through Atlanta Country Club. In later years, Don was kind enough to ask me to sell his home in the Riverside area, and bought his current home through us. He was very considerate, a true professional in his field, and a very good friend that will be missed greatly.

I will always remember Don as one of the kindest and most understanding people I have ever met, a true gentleman that always greeted you with his smile. There's no doubt my life was made better because of his influence. I'm sure I am not alone in feeling this… My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Wulz family.
