Amy & family,
I am so sorry to hear about Don's passing. He could always make me smile. His love for his family, friends, church and God was evident in everything he did. I will truly miss that burly smiling man whizzing by my office window on his lawnmower. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless You!

My heart goes out to all of the family. Don was my first cousin, and first good friend. I have many fond memories of us playing together at my grandmother’s house in Shelby. Prayers for comfort and peace.
