  1. My deepest respect for Shirley and Dawn in this difficult time. I have known Don for more than 50 years and he lived close to me in these last 10 years. He always had a treat for my puppy when we went by his open garage door that was available to all his neighbors to visit him. We had many discussions about everything and enjoyed our common interests that were always enjoyable. Don was very special and will miss his comments and Shirley who was also there many times. His daughter, Dawn has a birthday coming up soon since it is the same as mine. We know Don will be there in a more subtle way. Bless the family and wish you the best as we all move on.
    Love Always, Will
