Sandy, John and Holland,
I am so very sorry for Don's passing. We spoke about his life and his health at the reunion in September. I hope that the positive memories of his life will comfort you some during these tough times.

Sandy, John, and Holland,
My sympathies to you in the passing of Don. He was such a nice guy. I will miss our talks during Westminster's coffee hour - lots of sharing of children, grandchildren, and Deer Valley vacations. May God be with you and your family.
Blessings, Marilyn
