    I am truly sorry for you loss. I know he will be missed as a husband, father, grandfather, friend. I am thankful to have known Don growing up as a neighbor and my friend, Deb's, dad. I will remember him as a quiet family man working in the yard and around the house. May he rest in peace. Sincerely, Jill Schaefer Cross
