    To Shirley and Family,
    Sorry for your loss. I first meet Don 18 years ago while I was working acrossed the street from your home. I felt from that moment Don and I became instant friends. Don told me stories about growing up here in Spring City as a child, which included my family lineage. Occasionally Don would stop by my house on his four wheeler and I often ran into him at the post office and enjoyed many conversations with him. He was a gentleman with a big heart at the highest measure. He will surely be missed.
