Let me introduce myself. My name is Shelley and I am a member of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church. I am the one that headed up the rummage sales and other events at the church…..Don was very faithful at leading the group every Tuesday and Saturday at the church. He always tried to make a difference in other people’s lives. I will miss seeing and talking to him. You have my deepest sympathy.
