    I’m going to miss Don so much. I saw him almost daily and had the great pleasure to live on the same street for many years with his Mom and Dad. When I was getting ready to retire, Don helped me count down the days and seemed really excited for me. He was a great guy and I know he will be missed by his family and his friends. My sincerest condolences.
