I worked with Don at the ASCS/FSA office for many years. He was a kind caring person.
We are so sorry to hear about Don's passing, & we are saying prayers for the entire Osborn family during this difficult time. Don was a significant person in Dave's life for many years, & both Don & Marilyn have always been so welcoming & kind to Teresa as part of their own family. We are so thankful for both Don & Marilyn & the influence on Josh & Angie's (as well as their children's) lives over the years.
God's Blessings to all of you~
Dave, Teresa, & Logan Fraker
Marilyn, you and your family our in thoughts and prayers
