Condolences

The sadness my family feels at this time cannot b measured. Grandchildren and great grandchildren will not ever know the kind loving grandfather Don was. Sad to say the man responsible for Don's death as well as Mrs. Hamiltons wil not ever know the heartache and loss that we all feel. I pray for my family knowing that God is with them during this time to help them to deal with the loss of their father, grandfather, great grandfather, ex husband and friend. He will forever live on in our hearts and memories.With tearful sadness we say our goodbyes to you.
