    So sorry to hear this. My family thought a lot of Don, especially Dad. Don was more like a brother to Dad than his nephew. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Gary Tweed

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Don and I were first cousins. My Mom, Magnolia Pinner Lance and Aunt Lu were sisters. Don and I saw each other often while growing up. We lost touch after growing up. I regret not keeping in touch with Don and getting to know his family.
