I will really miss Cousin Don especially at Christmas. We always exchanged letters. Those letters were really supportive as I have gone through some life changes in the past years. I will miss him. Eternal peace grant unto him oh Lord and may the Eternal Light shine upon him and may he rest in peace.

I didn't get to be around uncle Don or his family while I was growing up. But with his Christmas cards and letters over the years he made me feel like I knew them
I will miss that this Christmas
Thoughts and prayers with all the family
