Every summer my family went to spend a couple of weeks with my grandparents. Donald and his brothers would be there since they lived down the road. ( My mom and his dad were brother and sister.) We would play and get into trouble together. As we grew to adulthood our lives still crossed paths even though we lived in different states and sometimes different countries.

Phyllis, My thoughts and prayers are with you, Denise and Jackson during this time. Words can't express how much we loved Don and you and the times we had together at the VFW. Stay strong as the Lord holds you on his shoulders during this time. We love you.
