I have many fond memories of my uncle, the Father. Sadly we had grown apart over the years but I will never forget him. He was a mentor; a sage; a man of God. He made the best blueberry cobbler and always had time to listen.

Uncle Don passed away this morning, he would have been 70 this year; and, he is the first of the nine brothers and sisters in my mother’s family to leave.

Born July 13, 1940. Died February 10, 2010. May he rest in peace. Amen.
