Not sure which memory makes me smile more. Watching him march in the band, gambling in downtown Las Vegas or all the personal support over the years. The world is a less brighter place without Don.

I had the pleasure of working with Don quite a while as his secretary/admin person at the RCS and enjoyed working with him. He was a hard worker, great co worker, very considerate and caring plus a total gentleman.

My sincere condolences to the family and may God keep you all safely and strong. Just focus on all the special you shared with Don.

Thanks Don for all the fun times In your backyard pool with Lynn and friends. Those are great times burned in my memory. Your home felt welcoming at all times.

Lynn and family, my prayers of peace are with you as you manage your way through this loss. Family is precious.

Dearest Mary and family; After 18 years of fun and games it will take awhile to believe he is gone. So glad we were able to spend time together in August. Wish I could be there for you. We are a phone call away. God be with you all at this time.
