Shirley, Kathy and family,
It's with mixed emotions that we face the passing of a love one. I have this vision of Don ringing his hand bells and singing away, while in the presence of God. Glad that he is no longer in need and continued prayers for the family. Please call if we can do anything. Robin Cox and family
