Sorry to hear of Don's passing. Have many fond memories of playing 10 point pitch, and walking beans and baling hay. What a good guy and a great cousin.

I remember Uncle Don always having a smile on his face and a warm welcome whenever I was there to visit. It was obvious the love he had for Aunt Alice and the kids too. He was a kind soul and will be missed. My condolences to the rest of the family.
