I will never forget all the fun I had working for Don and Bev at the restaurant. We shared so many laughs and fun. God bless Bev and all his kids and family. My heart is broken for you.

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Don Sr. and my condolences to all his family. He was a big part of me and my sisters lives for many years, and he will be dearly missed. Anytime I seen him in the later years he was genuinely glad to see me, and always had a smile on his face. Rest in peace Grandpa Don.
