Sorry to hear that Uncle Don passed away. He’s up there with all the Angels. I’m sorry we couldn’t make it up for the Services. Love you guys Laurie Romig and Family.
Thoughts and prayers with all. I will miss his subtle wisdom and humility. His pleasant company as he worked around the house, at camp, skiing, golfing. He has quietly taught me through action and word things I will always remember. I planned on being at the service, but came down with the flu.
Whish I could be there remembering “The last of the Last of the Good Ones.”
Mike and Family. So sorry to hear of the loss of Your father. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
