    It has been my privilege to have known Don for many years and to be of help to him and Mary. I always enjoyed his attitude and the way in loved life! I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the funeral but wish the family well as they face the days ahead. My wish is the fond memories of him replace your sorrow soon.
