I will never forget Don or Doris, as they had such a huge part in my childhood. Don always tried to teach me how to play pool--he was never successful! He was such a wonderful person and will always live on in those of us who knew him. My thoughts are with his family at this time.

Don and Doris lived across the street from my parents home, Glen and Dee Mindham, and were the most wonderful neighbors any one could ever ask for, my condolences to the boys and their families.

We always visited Uncle Earl, Aunt Sylvia and their four children..Don, Fred, Minnie and Marilyn......always had a great time and therefore have wonderful memories. Our Blessings and Prayers are with all of the family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
