It's hard to know what to say about my brother that everyone hasn't already said.. I loved him and always enjoyed our time together.. Camping, hunting and fishing with him are some of my fondest memories.. No matter where he was he enjoyed involving everyone in a game of cards every evening, thus making everyone even closer as a family. I will miss him terribly and send my love to all his family..`

Ruth and family,
I was totally devastated when I received that call from Angie. I know how hard it is to lose a man as wonderful as Don. I thought when Clem died my world had ended. Don was one of the first friends we had in Yuma. He helped Clem, Karine and I move into our first apartment here and became a life-time friend. We used to call him "Our Don". He was full of love, laughter, a wonderul husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be missed and we hold you all in our thougths and prayers.

Don - I will miss you more than you. Although the last few years were tough with Clem not being here on earth with us you and Ruth were still in our hearts. Clem and you will be singing, playing darts, and watching over us! Tell Clem we love him and miss him everyday. Heaven will be a better place now! It has two amazing angels!

Love and miss you so!

As a member of the family by marriage, I could've have hand picked a better father-in-law! He loved and accepted myself and my daughter into his family without a blink. Jennah became his granddaughter before I even became the daughter. I could talk to him for hours. He always made me feel loved. There is a hole in my heart that will remain always, but I am so grateful for the years I had with him, although not nearly enough!! I love you Don!! You are missed more than I thought I could!!

Uncle Don..., that is what I used to call you as a child. I remember how close you were to my dad Clem Smitn. I will never forget the day you dropped me off at school in that light booger green truck you drove.. I made you park about 1/2 a mile from the school so no one would see me get out of that truck! Lol. You were an amazing man who befriended my dad when he knew no one in the States.. Rest in peace Uncle Don, you will be missed. Tell my daddy I love him and miss him so much. xxx

Donald was a man who was bigger than life itself, he was full of love, laughter and fun. He loved to cook for a hungry bunch of family and friends, loved to sing but most of all, he loved my sister, his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I was blessed to call him my brother. Love, hugs and endless prayers to all feeling his loss.

Ruth & Family, I never met Don but being in the family and seeing the love and support pouring out for you all he must have been a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and brother-in-law! There are no magic words to make everything better. Know that he will be missed everyday and that there are people who love you all and are there for you when you need them. Love to all.
