Dear Charlotte, Terri, Don, David, Danny,Michael, and Bebs,

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband,father and brother. Don was a wonderful husband, father, brother, cousin to me, and friend. He was the type of man that would give you the shirt off of his back if you were in need. His presence will be sorely missed in our family. I am so sorry that I am unable to get back to WV for the service. It was fortunate that I came to see Don just 2 weeks ago and got to hold his hand and have him smile at me. I will hold that memory fondly in my heart. Know that I will be with you all in spirit and prayer. May our wonderful memories of Don help us all to heal. My love to all of you, Connie
