Not sure what to say?

Leafie and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Dear Leafie, Casey and Donnie,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I have many great childhood memories of Don, as I know many kids from the Enfield area do. I know he will be greatly missed.

Dearest Leafie:

What a sad day, when I learned of Don's passing. To me, you and Don were and are part of my fondest memories of growing up in Enfield, and I am sure I can never adequately express to you how much each of you influenced my life for the better. I remember Don coaching my brother and me in little league baseball, and how important his positive encouragement was to me. And then much later, of course, I had the pleasure of working with you and Don at the...

Leafie --
When Dr. Wood and I arrived in town in 1960, Don was one of the very first to welcome us. He had heard the new doctor in town had been a ski jumper, and he dived right in to get us out on the hill! He helped us get our oldest boy, Steve, on skis and out to Ski Week at Snowcrest, he helped in any way he could with anything to do with kids and skiing out there! He is one of our "Snowcrest memories" (how many people even know what Snowcrest means today?)


Our thoughts are with you Leafie, Casey & Donny. Don will forever be remembered by many who crossed his path. Our condolences go out to all of you and the grandchildren.

Leafie, Donald, and Casey,
I have such fond memories of Don at Snack-n-Store. Always ready with a joke or funny comment.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Leafie, Casey, Don, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers til I see you.

To Casey and the rest of the Family: May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
~ Our deepest sympathy,
