    I grew living next door to the Splichal Family and Donny was like an older brother.
    We held Olympic events in the backyard and competed in jumping over the small fences and tables.
    The families on the block were close knit and we all grew-up together.
    I was hoping to see Don sometime down the road, but that can wait.
    Love to all the Family Members
    Your old Neighbor
