I always had great love, respect, and admiration for one the hardest working men i have ever had the privilege to work with.

His dedication, compassion, and love for lost souls was tremendous.

I enjoyed working in the bus minstry with Brother Don.

My deepest sympathies go to Don Jr. (another good man) and the entire family on your temporary loss, Heaven's gain.
