Margo, We were so surprised to hear the news about your beloved Don. Our family has been blessed to cross paths with you and Don and we will forever cherish the memories we have with you guys. We have considered you and Don as part of our family and we will miss Don greatly. Don cared for our children for many years while on the bus to school and we will never forget how excited our children were to see him every day! Don always brought out “the claw” with PJ which all the kids laugh about to this day. We cannot tell you what comfort it provided us to know they were in such good hands when our children were so little. Don was there to see each of the kids at their graduations and celebrated their accomplishments with them which meant so much to Alexa, PJ and Bri. Although our hearts are heavy now, we find comfort in knowing that Don is with our Heavenly Father in paradise.
