Shirley & Family,
I'm so sorry to hear about Don. My heart breaks for you. Don was always such a sweet guy with a big hug and smile.
Be strong in our Lord and we know we'll see he and Jack soon. Bet they are already telling stories, and they always had a story to tell.
All my love and listen to our Savior.
