Dear Penny and Family,

So sorry for your loss. Don was a good friend and I will always remember how he helped me in my early days at Vigortone. I always enjoyed visiting with him each time we would see each other after his retirement.

Dear Pennie, Dawn, Rich and family,
So very sorry for your loss. Don will be greatly missed at family gatherings. He was a wonderful Grandpa to Caden.
Thinking of you all. I truly cherished our talks at the V.A. Hospital before his passing.
Prayers and love
