Not sure what to say?

Don was a wonderful classmate in medical school - always cheerful and fun to be with. He frequently slipped away on weekends to play cricket. We miss him and will memorialize him with affection at our 50th reunion. Our deep sympathy to all in the family.

Prayers for you, Dona & the family & friends. Dr Snider was loved by all that knew him. My parents have missed him since the day he left.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family Dona. Dr. Snider always had a friendly hello and smile on his face when our paths crossed and his photos were inspirational. Praying for peace for you family at this time. Dr. Snider will be greatly missed.

Becky and Family,
We are sorry to hear of your loss. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so saddened to hear of Dr Snider's passing. He was so good natured and talented, really loved to hear him laugh. I worked in the ER with him at GSH. And of course, my dad Roscoe thought a lot of both Dr & Mrs Snider.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dr Snider at GHS in Vincennes, IN. He was a gifted surgeon, a wonderful story teller, and fabulous photographer.

I am sincerely sorry for your loss. May God's Grace give you strength during this difficult time

I'm sure God had it planned that way. He...

Dona - I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I've missed Dr. Snider since he moved away from Vincennes. He was a wonderful doctor and a nice man. You both alway made me feel at ease in your office. You're in my thoughts & prayers. Emily Ford Ridgley
