Don was my Dad's (Joe Lush) room mate in Pana. I remember when we would go see Dad, Don always had a smile on his face. He was such a kind man. He would watch over Dad and if Dad needed something, Don would call for the nurse. After Dad passed, I wrote to Don to thank him for being so good to Dad. We have kept in touch through letters. I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He will defiantly be missed. I will always remember him as a happy guy with a smile on his face. I will keep his family in my prayers.
