You were always ready with a laugh and good cheer while volunteering at Meadowlark. You made my volunteering so much fun.

I will watch your speech from our wedding for the rest of my life. I am so thankful for it, and for you.
Grandpa Don, we will miss you greatly. You were such an important part of our lives, and we are still in shock how quickly this has all developed. We will carry you with us for the rest of our lives, and you will remain unforgotten by us, and the whole family. I am so thankful we were able to see you in July, and that we spoke on the phone recently. You never know when you will last hear from a loved one, always tell them that you love them, I am thankful I had that chance. We love you and miss you!

Oh, Don I will miss our times playing 50s music for you during our visits. You enhanced our lives with love, humor and what we like to call Spice. I/we will miss you greatly.
