We are sorry to hear of Don's passing. We were friends from many years ago, when we also drove bus, and we would play cards together. Don and Sandy taught us how to play Crazy Rummy, a card game we have enjoyed for some time. You have our condolences.

We have a lot of good memories of Don & his late sister, Joyce. We knew them both for many years, but in recent years had met at the mall on Tuesdays. Our thoughts are with the family during this sorrowful time.
