Don was a very special person. His loss will be felt by so many. His smile could light up a room and his sense of humor was infectious. He was one of my son Van's best friends and I know they are in Heaven together now. It is so sad that cancer has taken away another of our loved ones. Don will always be here for his family. His spirit will watch over each of you until you join him for eternity.

So sorry for your loss. Don will be remembered as a kind friend who taught my daughter to play the guitar with patience and kindness. He was always ready to help others and asked nothing in return. He fought a brave fight and kept his sense of humor and incredible strength of character. condolences and prayers.

Praying for your family. RIP Don. Shelly and Jordan you did all you could do to help your husband and father fight that horrible disease. It is admirable how much you both stuck by him through thick and thin. He is with God now to prepare a beautiful place for your reunion one day. May God bring peace to your hearts.
