Joan, I am so sorry for your lose, I have wondered many days where you and Don was. I worked in Optics next to Don and we had so many good talks and visits, talked about motorcycles and He always kidded me about my southern talk and as you know I ate with you and Don several times at your house. I know you will surely miss Him after a long marriage of 60 years. Please when you settle down and feel like talking, I would like to visit with you.
God Bless you and your family during these sad times.
