I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing. I want you to know what a pleasure it was to get to know you both while I was at Busch's. I really enjoyed watching Don's eyes light up as he chose the perfect Christmas look for your home. (several times!).

Know that you are in my prayers.

John, I am so very saddened by the loss of such a wonderful friend and person. Donald Gene always made me feel special when I was young and his parents babysat me. As an adult, my days were brightened when you and Don arrived at our family gatherings with a warm smile and open arms. He was always there for comfort and support for my Mom. We have been blessed to have him in our lives and that he brought you into our lives. My deepest sympathy and gratitude.
