Rest in Peace. Condolences and prayers for your family.
I will cherish the memories of all of our talks and the stores you told.

Don wasa week older than me. I always loved visits from Don's family when we were growing up in Rockport. We always stayed in touch after he moved to Evansville and Florida. I loved Don and felt his love for everyone when talking to him on the phone. I enjoyed meeting his wife and oldest grandson. I wish that I could have visited him in Florida but wasn't able to do so. I'm sure that I met Tony when he was a kid. I want to send my sincerest sympathy to Tony and family. He loved you all so...

Dear Don(nie) and family,
We have so many good and fun memories from our childhood that only cousins share! Family gatherings, sleepovers, your big home that was always full of kids, Thanksgivings with the whole brood of Andersons. I think we always think there will be tomorrow and then there isn’t. You will be missed by so many. Sending love to those still here. Love Deb(bie)

Brother Don was a wonderful man while here on this earth! He loved his family unconditionally and he loved my family unconditionally too!
He was instrumental in my coming to know the Lord and growing in that relationship. He took me and my family into his home when we had no other place to live and supplied our needs when necessary! He was also instrumental in getting me the best job I ever had in my life at BFI Waste where I worked for 24and1/4 years and then retired. He's been there...

May God bless, comfort, and console his family and loved ones
