  1. We will truly miss our wonderful neighbor. It was uplifting to watch Don with his grandchildren. It was very obvious that they meant the world to him, and they knew it. He was famous for the golf car rides he would give them. What a great guy!

  2. Don was such a great man and I feel so lucky to have known him.He was a great friend to my dad and he always made me laugh everytime I saw him I will surely miss him but I know he is with Jesus, pain free, and connecting with loved ones. We love you Don and will miss you.

  3. We will miss Don. He was a great guy. We shared many memories with him and Brenda. We pray for Brenda and family. We pray God in his time will give them comfort and bring joy back in their hearts eventually. We send our love, Jim and Pat Caston
