Dear Family and Friends,
I send my prayers and loving support to all those experiencing grief and sadness at the passing of my Uncle Don. So many fond memories of those special times we got to be together. His laugh was infectious and he was one of the best story tellers I've ever known. He was such a Godly example to me. He will be missed by so many.

We feel so incredibly blessed to have had Don in our family as the very best brother-in-law and uncle anyone could ask for. He always made us laugh with his fun attitude about life, and yet he always let us know how intense his love was for his family and his Lord, And we all knew how very much he loved his wife, Sylvia (Sweetie),--she was the love of his life. We know he is rejoicing with her now. We will miss him terribly!

Jan and Dave Stoop
