Dear Kay and family,
My first and lasting impression of Don was how he (and others) made me feel so "at home" in the Barbershop Harmony Society. He, like you, became a real friend and was always such an encouragement to me. It stirred my heart to see the culmination of his work, writing and valiantly performing in the most recent barbershop show. What a testimony to the spirit and grace with which he lived his life!! It has been said that "friendship multiplies our joy, and divides our sorrow." It is my prayer that you will find great comfort in the grace of God and the memories of a life well-lived. May God bless and encourage you in every way!
Fresh from the Vietnam war, Mr Carraway offered me a job when I had none, he continued to provide guidance and positive suggestions for the next 25+ years. He was a blessing to me and all that came in contact with him. Our family prayers and well wishes are extended to you and your family. Our Love to all The Mayos
Kaye, You and Don were my hero couple when you were dating and especially when you got married. I remember thinking that you both looked so happy and always had the most beautiful smiles! Please know that you will be in my prayers. Gayle Brown Smith
Don & Eddie signed me up 11 years ago. I remember so many good times with Don. He was always happy and cheerful. Memories of Xmas at your house and practicing for the VLQ. We sure will miss him and all he provided to the Chordsmen.
Words are shallow when a light has dimmed that shined so brightly for so long. Heaven has a new voice in its chorus. While he will be missed by many, may everyone take comfort that he now has "everlasting peace"! His fight was gallant, his spirit never waivered and his heart found its way into those who knew him.
May God guide Kay and his family through the days ahead by their faith and the comfort in knowing there IS a Heaven where we will all meet once again.
Would that we all could face our end/beginning with the grace and ease that Don showed so many days before he actually "transitioned". He was and remains an inspiration.
We send our friendship and love to you all in your time of sorrow. May God be with all of you.
Kay, my prayers go out to you and your family. I remember how much Don enjoyed the Barber Shop Quartet. He will be missed by all.
Donald will remain in our hearts and memory as the most thoughtful and kind person anyone could ever be privileged enough to have as a friend. Sharing together 40 years of travel, holidays, cookouts, weddings, birthdays & anniversaries (and an occassional song)
is one of the greatest blessings of our life. We will alway love him.
Bill & Donna Elliott
My heart aches for all of you. You all are in our thoughts and prayers every step of the way. We love you all.
Don we will see you on the other side of the river; all the "Brown" cousins remember you with great affection
No one could laugh or sing better than Don! We will miss him, and remember him always. May the Lord be with you all.
We love Don and will miss him always.
Don Carraway gave me my first job after dropping out of college in 1970. I have always remembered him as encouraging and supportive in my efforts to get started in living. My deepest sympathy to all his family.
All my love to The Carraway Family. Many years of love, laughter, and wonderful memories.
