Hoping this poem brings some comfort to Don's family and friends. "A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it." (author unknown)

Carol, Donna, Terri & Vicki - My heart goes out to all of you as I am sure Uncle Don's passing was as big of a surprise to you as it is to the rest of us. Although we didn't get together often, the kids still talk about his 80th Birthday party and remember him for the fun they had helping to celebrate. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and remember, I'm only a phone call away if you need anything.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was so saddened by the news of the passing of my favorite teacher and friend Don. I lived across the street from the "old folks" house, at 1303 S. Lawe St. and spent many an hour over there listening to stories from Jake. When Don and Patty built their house I was there every day "helping". Looking back I must have been a real pain at times, but they put up with me. Memories of watching the Friday night fights on tv., them taking me to a movie,( "Along Came Jones"), and buying me a flannel shirt, (black and white check) for Christmas will always live in my memories. If you ever see a picture of their dog "Treve" up on a step ladder, I was the one who taught him to climb. I always looked forward to visiting with Don and Patty whenever I came back to Appleton. He was my favorite teacher and coach and was the reason I went into teaching and coaching myself. Don was my role model and he will be missed. My sympathys go out to you girls, your spouses, and children. Bill Casper

Carol ~ My heart aches for you. Losing your second parent is just a different experience. I’m happy, as you are, that he is with your mother. I believe that she held his hand as he moved from this world to heaven. They are both watching over you now. As time goes on you will feel their presence and it will give you comfort. Please know that I'm thinking about you and your family.
