My sincerest condolences to Betsy and family. I had the privilege of working with Don at Savannah Center for 11 years. He was so kind and patient. He will be missed. I will be out of town on the day of his service. My thoughts will be there. Hoping many fond memories of him will bring peace and comfort.

We will always remember Don fondly and our children will miss seeing Mr Don daily wave to them as he walked up to his mailbox. He was a thoughtful and friendly neighbor who helped us feel welcomed to the cul-de-sac when we were still new to the neighborhood. Praying for your family. -Danny, Julie, Eliana, Norah, Beckett, Ashton Kwon
