So sorry to learn of Don's passing, and I'm offering my sincere condolences. It's not an easy time for you I know. It's very difficult to lose the one you have spent most of your life with. My experience is you never get over it, but you learn to cope. Health issues prevent me from making a personal visit. In the process if having back procedures which will help me walk, on oxygen 24/7 plus a walker. Other than that I'm in good shape. LOL......Now live in Yellow Apts on Maplecrest behind Target. Have thought of you often but have no clue how to reach you. When things calm down please call me @260-710-6623; my E-mail is c.williams4738@gmail.com.
Please convey my sympathy to your family. Best wishes and much love! Carl

He was such a fun Uncle!
He bought a convertible one year and came and took all of my brothers and sisters a ride in it!
He was always a kid at heart!
He loved to have fun and make people smile!
He will be missed!
