Our condolences to you Barb and all of Don's family. Don was a "genius" in the auto world. The things that man could do with a car/truck/golf cart/whatever had wheels. We had the pleasure of knowing Don and receiving the fruits of his skills. Terrific sense of humour, always had time for you. Our family misses you.
Sweet Don

Don will be greatly missed. I have many great memories of Don which I will cherish always. Both Joe and I are privileged to have known him. We're thinking of all of you, and know Don is looking down on us all with a sly grin on his face.

All our love
