I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Don. You don't really know me but I was a member of St Edward's when you worked there. I always thought you were such a nice lady. So I wanted to express my sympathies to you and your family.

Dear Donna and family, we haven't seenyou in a long time but have such fond memories of Cindy and Melanie playing soccer through the years and all the coaching Don did. He was a patient and kind man, and the world was better because of him. Treasure the memories.

Donna and Family: We are holding you and the rest of the family in our prayers in the loss of Don. He was such a kind and gentle man and I always thought a lot of him. I can remember when he would always offer to help mom and I with the christmas decorations and never complained. He was a true inspiration to this world and the next. I know you will miss him but I bet he can teach those people up in heaven a lot of his takents that he had here on earth. I still miss my mom and dad and my brother a lot. I don't go a day without lighting my memory candle of my mom. But I do know she is in a better place where there is no more hurting and sickness. We will continue to remember you in our prayers in the coming days ahead.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
