As my favorite uncle, Don always had a hug and a silly joke to share. I valued his experience in life and his wisdom. Don was an honorable man, something very rare today. He said what he meant (which was sometimes uncomfortable to hear) and he meant what he said. To quote his favorite poet Robert Frost "We love the things we love for what they are". And I loved this special man.
