Don was a great cousin and he will be missed. He was much like his Dad with a sense of humor. I wish I would be able to attend the service. Because of COVID-19, I don’t feel it is a good idea to travel much away from my area. I send my heartfelt condolences to Barb and the rest of Don’s family. Love, Cheryl and Jerry
