I am so sorry to hear the news of Don's passing. My heart goes out to all of his wonderful family members. I have many memories of him when I was young. Our families had alot of fun together & I was very lucky to have made a lifelong friendship with his daughter, Debbie. Lil,I hope you find comfort in all of your wonderful memories you & Don created in the past 60 years! Debbie & siblings, each one of you has a little bit of your DAD in you,he will always be close to your hearts. I miss you all!!
LOVE, Kathy Root

Having felt the joy, kindness, gentleness and wisdom Pop freely gave to everyone, it is going to be difficult to look at his chair without him in it; so hard to drive by the house and not see him on the front stoop waving; tough to watch a football game and not hear him comment about some decision a coach made; disappointing to not hear him playing with the grands, each in their unique way. Looking into Pop's face, and seeing how happy he was just to be with you, gave a sense of true welcome, true peace, and his words were always kind, deliberate and perfect. Everything was always ok when spending time with Pop -- troubles of the day would just take a seat for a while -- perhaps because they simply could not stand up against a real man with a heart full of love. What a gift. We shall remember his ways and love him back forever.

I didn't know Don personally, but heard many good things about him. I know he always attended Mass with Lillian and was a wonderful example to his children and grandchildren. Please accept my sympathy and prayers to the whole family. May Don rest in eternal peace and may perpetual light shine upon him. ~ Pat Cox
