    I want to extend my condolences to Eloise and all the family. It was an honor and privilege to know Don. When he came in the Post Office, it always made my day better. I was in the Navy and knowing he was a WWII veteran was extra special. Every time we lose a WWII veteran, we lose part of America. He was a special man and I will miss him. My heart is with you.

    Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. I (Jill) had the privelege of getting to know Don & Sis at the Wellness Center many years ago. He was such a bright spot in the mornings to everyone there. The stories he told were always so enjoyable and quite often funny too. Over the years of seeing them out at lunch here and there in town, we would always speak and laugh at his latest story or jokes. He will be missed by many just as he was loved by many. Cherish those memories – he was a wonderful one-of-a-kind man!!! May God rest his soul and may you all find comfort in know he is in a beautiful place
