Aunt Bertie,
We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Don passing. I will miss him, but am so thankful for the times that I got to spend with him. The two of you have always seemed like you were right down the street from us and saw us every week, even though we live many miles and states apart. God truly blessed us with having him in our lives. We love you!

 Aunt Bertie & Family, our    thoughts and prayers are with you. Uncle Don will be missed by everyone in the family. I'm glad I have all the memories of him on and off the farm. Even my sons have memories of Uncle Don taking time out and playing basketball with them. He was truly a good man, who would help a friend or family member when needed. This kind of man is truly a dying breed. If there is anything can do for you, please let me know. Take care, Love Judy & Dean Sonnedecker
