Don was a very special person. I'm glad I had the privilege of knowing him... I will miss all of his jokes that he told... No matter how many times I had heard them, they were still funny

I have had the privilege of knowing this very special man, along with his lovely wife Ona for several years. Through my work at the Democrat and from outside encounters I have come to know not only them, but feel like I know the rest of the family. He was so proud of all of you and was the epitome of a true gentleman. I will miss him.
