  1. Susie & Family,

    So sorry to hear about Don passing away. I always enjoyed having a cocktail with “Conway”. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Lincoln. We had some great times at USXpress. He was always a fun guy to work with or talk Husker Football with. Sure gonna miss him! Thinking of you all!

  2. Extending my deepest condolences to Susie and family following the death of Donald. Praying that God will uplift your spirits and carry you through this time of sadness.

  3. Susie, I was sorry to learn that Don had passed away. What a great picture of him. His smile so much reminds me of sweet .Loretta. Peace and comfort to you and your family during this sad time.
