I was sad to hear of Don’s passing. I have known him for over 50 years, and I always say to myself where has the time gone. Over the years when I would see him and Darlene out, he was always kind to me and had a smile. I was also extremely fortunate to have him as my patient at the VA Clinic for 5 years. The next few days will be difficult, but you will have memories and each other to help you through. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
