Donald was a wonderful Grandfather to my children—his granddaughters Madison and Nicole. He taught them to roller skate and took them for tractor rides. He loved holding
and snuggling with them as babies. Donald
and Phyllis went to their school events and
concerts when they visited Texas. He was very patient, kind and loving. We will miss him dearly and we will always keep him in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers go
out to you Phyllis, the best Grandma in the world! With all our love, Katrina, Madison and Nicole McPherson.
