  1. Dear Young Family,

    We just want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to take care of Don. You are all such a blessing.

  2. Dear family,
    I have so many good memories with Uncle Don. He was a very kind, wonderful man whom I never saw get angry so say a stern word. Very brave as well. My deepest sympathies goes out to each of you. My very favorite memory is my private time I had with Uncle Don in my kitchen while the rest of the family was out on a search party for him, He was on a walk and I snatched him up!!! Love to all

  3. Carole, We are sorry to learn of your fathers death. Our prayers are with you and your family. May your sadness be replaced with the wonderful memories of the good times you had with him. Your neighbors. Hank and Retha Buis
