I always enjoyed having breakfast with Don and the other Doctors when I visited my parents in Erie. I talked to him a week or so prior to his passing. I knew he was sick but thought that I would see him again. I recall that he was planning on a fishing trip to Alaska with his nephews. I always enjoyed visiting the farm especially during blueberry season. I was saddened by the news. Will miss him. Rest In Peace Don and God bless the family. Dr Mark Kirkland Norwalk Iowa
