Condolence & Memory Journal

Uncle Don will been missed, but never forgotten. I remember how impressed I was with his creativity and quick wit. I remember him ALWAYS having a compliment for me. Mostly I remember the genuine love he had for his family. All of my memories make me smile and warm my heart.

Rest eternal grant him, after weary fight; shed on him the radiance of thy heavenly light. Lead him onward, upward to the holy place, where thy saints made perfect gaze upon thy face.

Knew and worked with Don at Chrysler. From his days working in microfilm department, the sign department and then in customer service in the graphic arts department Don was easy going and pleasant to all he came in contact with. I worked with a lot of guys, Don was one of the good guys. Rest in Peace.

I will miss my dear friend. So many great memories I will cherish forever. I always enjoyed our talks. That morning we talked and Don coached me thru fixing a drainage problem I was having. I told him I would let him know how it turned out....Thanks Brother, you were right! We had many laughs. I loved when he called Lori and me (Jerry) as " Jori and Larry" I know in my soul you are looking down on us with that warm hearted smile. See you on the other side.
