Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry for the loss of your dad, father-in-law and grandfather. He loved his family deeply, and I hope it will give you comfort to know that he is reunited with your loving mom.
I feel blessed to have been his niece. One of the endearing memories I have of him is his quick dry wit delivered with a little smile.
He was a good man and will be deeply missed.

I am sorry for your loss. My condolences to family and friends. May the God of comfort give you strength during this difficult time. Psalm 68:20

My heart breaks for you, Jesse and Fred on the loss of your dad. My heart goes out to you Erika and Rose on the loss of your father-in-law. And Megan just know how very much your grandfather loved you. To the Carpenters: thank you for sharing this incredible man with me.I'll miss you Uncle Don.

I'm sorry that I didn't get to know Don better because I moved away from the Bay Area to the North State, however, I know from what my niece Erika said that he was a truly lovely man. I'm so glad he was able to spend quality time with his terrific son Jesse and Erika and got to know their darling little girl Megan. Life is measured by treasured moments and I'm sure he had a lot of those.
