He will be surrounded by green grass, tall trees and blue sky. The service will be conducted by family and friends. It will be a time to mourn, share memories, see old friends, heal ourselves and celebrate the life of a wonderful man. Please bring your memories of Don's life to share with us. Don wore jeans and shorts, friends are invited to wear their favorite clothes, casual or dress. Instead of sending flowers, we ask that you take a friend to lunch or dinner and tell him or her the things we often think of only after someone is gone.
