A special thank you to Terry and Teresa Russell who were so special to Don. Your endless caring and assistance was so greatly appreciated. Don loved you both as family.
Don chose not to have a funeral. He was set in his ways, and adamant that nobody would come to a service to be sad that he is gone. He was at peace. God was in his heart, he was tired and ready to go “home”. He will be missed dearly!
