Pam, and family. I was shocked when I read Don' s obituary in the paper. I am so sorry. It has been a long time since I have seen you, but when I drive by that yellow house by menasha high, I still think of the fun times hanging out at your house and watching Stephanie and Amy as little kids. When things settle down, gives me a call as I would love to,see you and catch up with you. So very sorry for your loss.

Pam, I have been friends with Don for over 50 years, and you nearly as long. I first met Don in grade school at Bethel, when his family relocated from Waupaca. Between pool, archery, motorcycles and mustangs and, we spent a great deal of our spare time together, until our paths diverged in the late 60’s. He ended up in the Army then back home, and I went off to Chicago then California. Even though our contact has been minimal the last 40 years, the friendship developed during those early years has never diminished. I was deeply saddened by the news, but Don will never be forgotten. He was special to me, and surly to most people he came in contact with. Don will always continue to be my friend, as well as you, Amy, Stephanie, and the rest of the Peterson clan. Gods blessings to you all.
