  1. Don and I went to school together and remained friends all these years. In our younger
    years we spent many Saturdays playing 42.
    He had a big heart and would help anybody in need. Even though we only visited
    each other every so often, I will miss a trusted friend.

  7. Don and I go back a few years. When I met him I knew immediately that he was one of a kind. We shared many, many laughs together. I will never forget the joke that Frey and Bryant pulled on me one night. Greatest practical joke of all time. I can still hear both of them laughing when they finally told me the truth! Rest in peace my friend.
