Don was a great guy. I remember his kindness when we lived in Milwaukee and the great job he did for my mother in making the needed renovations. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time
Joan and Julie,
I was saddened to hear about your loss. Don reminded me so much of my grandfather, Vic. He had the same gentle soul. He will be sorely missed by all who loved him. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to you both and to Raymond.
