Don, I can only think of you as my brother, I have known and loved you for 72 years. I remember the day you married my beautiful sister Pat. You were a faithful, hardworking and loving husband and father. My five children are also saddened, they had such good times playing wiffel ball with you, Dan, Ray, and Mike. You grilled hundreds of burgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob on your homemade grill. Don, I know you are free of pain, and now you can hear the angels singing. You are in your heavenly home with Jesus Christ the son of God. This is your home for eternity, so we rejoice for you even as we mourn you. You will always have a piece of my heart. We will take good care of Pat for you.
Always with love, NANCY You will continue to be in my daily prayers.

To my nephews Dan, Ray, Mike and there wife's. Your Father was a good man. "Uncle Don" was loved by all. I am so glad I got to visit him in November. He and Fred are surely sitting around God's campfire enjoying a polish sausage. To my Sister Patty I am always here for you.

Pat, Rich and I always enjoyed stopping by to visit you in Kentucky. Rich would always tell stories of fun things that happened when they both worked for Dick Day. I know he will be missed. Rest In Peace Don.
