Many of my favorite childhood memories involve Uncle Don and Aunt Diane or any one of their kids. I can still hear his voice uttering what to most will sound like a silly phrase, but to me was comic gold. It might be "Thanks for cleaning out my chandeleir" after one of our friends accidentally knocked it from the ceiling, or "GE: Really important people" after Dave Letterman mocked his company on national television, or "She's not a purple building she's a mauve" after I don't even know what. These are just phrases that I have heard his voice say all week. You will be missed Uncle Don! If I can ever get your voice out of my head.

Though Don's passing brings sorrow, and it will take time to work through that process, we can take solace in knowing he no longer feels pain, nor anxiety. He is at peace.
When we were around Don, it was obvious he was not going to let his health issue, even with its potential outcome, dictate how he lived his life. He was courageous.
Our shared grandchildren each had their own special bond with their grandfather, one - books, the other sports. They will have lifelong memories to cherish.
The next time we celebrate one of their birthdays, there will be that momentary expectation of seeing Don sitting there, then reality will assert itself.
Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers
Love you,
Pat and David

Our hearts are so sad that Don has passed. Happy for him that he is no longer in pain, but sad for those of us who are left to carry on. Diane, you and Don were the "other" part of our family and made us feel that we were part of yours. We enjoyed Ocean Isle with you and yours; it seems as if we should be planning for the trip this year, but that is not to be. We remember the solar eclipse at the Stilley; who were all those people? We remember our "early" trip to Door County; that was so much fun! We remember the Christmas that you, Don and Patty&Chris&Lauren came up to Chatham; we enjoyed that precious time with all of you. We really loved the times we spent at your house, but I think most of the times that we spent on the front porch at The Stilley. Don enjoyed that the most! We love all of you and keep you in our prayers. Don is now at peace and some day you will be too.
