Connie, Scott, Jan, and Lee,
You are all in my thoughts and prayers, as is Don. He was such a special and caring person, and one of the most significant male figures in my life!
Don was a true gentleman, and a fantastic role model. He made a positive impact on my life, and I am so thankful to have had so many memories and experiences with him (and La Von) and all of you. Don is sincerely one of the best people I have ever known. He was one of the most influential people in my life, and I can honestly say my entire family feels that way!
He truly lived a fantastic life, and that impact now lives though us all.
Sincerely,
Bill Ihrke
