    Uncle Don had such a big booming low voice that used to scare Teri when we would stay at his house to visit Laurel and Leslie. It wasn’t until we were adults that we found out what a big marshmallow he was. I have many fond memories of times spent together. I will remember his great sense of humor and his love of playing games. My love and compassion to his family. You all will be in my thoughts. Love Johane
