Condolence & Memory Journal

Don was such a fine man. We worked at MBBOERNE together. When I started he was the person that trained me. A God fearing man. Made me smile when I was having a bad day. Would give the shirt off his back. You will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to his family. Don is with God. Thank you Jesus!! Amen

I have missed Don these past several months. He was a great presence in our meetings, filled with humility, love, and always a good chuckle. May the angels carry him safely into the arms of God.

To my sister Wanda: Don always balanced you and made you so happy. I loved him just for that but also because I recognized he was a good, honest man. He served well to those he mentored from his great big ole Texas sized heart. I know you you have many, many happy memories to help you through your grief. I love you with all my heart and I share in your sorrow and your tears. I pray your life without Don be as joyful to you as the many years the two of you shared. Always, Peggy
