My deepest sympathy to everyone in Don's
family. I worked with Don at Embarq for years and since he retired would catch up with him at the resturant. May it help
to know others are thinking of you at this time.
Diane, I was so very sorry to
learn of Don's passing. If ever I can do anything for you, please know you only need to ask. Best wishes.
Dear Diana & family,
I am very sorry to hear about the passing
of Don. I live in Hanover and my job brought me to Carlisle in 1982. As most telephone workers, we knew Don at work and
with the restaurant. I am sure his volunteer work with the Fire Company and the youth organizations will contribute much
to his legacy. All of you will be in my prayers as you remember Don with love in the months and years to come. I am sorry;
but, I am not able to attend the services. God Bless.
Diane and family
