Thank you for the outpouring of love and concern during Don’s illness and passing. We were overwhelmed by the support and the kind words. Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a visit, sent prayers, brought food, attended the service, and gave memorials and flowers in his honor. The special memories you shared were particularly meaningful. It brought us comfort to know that our beloved husband and father will be remembered long past his lifetime.

With many blessings

and much gratitude,

Marianne, Debra,
