Don was always happy he never saw anything wrong with anyone. If only everyone could see all the world as Don did it would be a fantastic world. He enjoyed counting trucks and seeing all their different colors. He also enjoyed going to see elephants and turtles. Don loved all his family and spending time with babies he had his little ritual he went through and that was a love sign to me. He never met a stranger nor did he ever hurt anyone. He was a loveable man who loved playing his harmonica and juice harp. And as he said, “Your never to old to cut the mustard are you Glor Jean?” Don will be sadly missed by all his family and friends. He is finally home with his mom and dad. He was baptized on July 11, 2017 at SSM Hospital per his wish.
