Words cannot express how truly sorry I am. I am so glad I had the pleasure of knowing Don over the past several years. He and Barbara always treated me like I was part of the family. I loved Don with all of my heart. The Energizer Bunny is what I referred to him as. He always had a smile on his face, giving me a hard time for eating too much and joking around about everything(just like my dad did, which means he liked me), always stopped what he was doing to help my family in anyway possible, had a heart of gold, was one of my dad’s best friends, which I’m most thankful for. I’m sure he is in heaven hanging out with my dad right now, watching over Barbara and his family. My thoughts and prayers are with Barbara, his friends, and family during this difficult time. Sending my love and hugs to you, Barbara. Look forward to his celebration of life. Don will definitely be missed! Heaven gained another angel. Rest in peace. 🙏❤️
So very sorry of Don’s passing, but so very blessed that he is with his Heavenly Father. He is now healed and no longer suffering. Barbara, you have been an amazing wife and Caregiver. Don was blessed to have you as his wife, for 30 years. We will all miss his laughter and joy. I am sure Robbie was waiting on him, ready to laugh and tell him jokes. With love and prayers, Jodie
Going to miss Don so much. He was always so fun to be around and could pull a joke out of the simplest of things. He will be greatly misses. You all our in my thoughts.
To my love we had 30 wonderful years. I’ll always remember all of our travels. We had provided me with such a wonderful life. You are now pain free my love, I will miss you until eternity.
Barbara, this time is a double edged sword for you. On one side you have lost the love of your life; you will be alone for a time, BUT the memories are so bitter sweet, Our Lord and Savior has promised that you will be together again where there is NO pain, No suffering Keep those memories.
We love you
Marshall and Debbie
I’m so sorry for your loss Barbara I didn’t know him personally but just from our conversations at work I could tell he was an amazing person may God be with you and your family
Barbara & Don,
It certainly speaks volumes when you can meet a couple on a 4 day cruise and remain friends for over two decades and countless miles. You truly are an amazing couple and we will cherish the memories we made together. Barbara, Don is an amazing man and we certainly share in your grief over his loss.
