So sorry for the loss of your family member and friend. We have much to look forward to. In Revelation 21:4 the Bible tells us " And he will wipe our every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Sincerely, Kay

I am the physician medical director of Douglas County VNA hospice. I learned at our team meeting that Don died under our care. I worked with Don at Deluxe when I was in college in the early 70s. I remember him as big, strong and jolly all the time. He was well-liked.
