    Don was a great guy, will always remember him from high school. At one time he lived on the next block from me near the high school. I also remember when he was close friends with Bobby Kaye and lived on Hudson Street. He was a good friend and a good guy. Now he is at peace and that’s what matters.

    Don,n Kathy & I will miss seeing Dottie and you at GHS functions. Our Creator called you home; and that was a higher priority. You are a free soul at last ? no sickness of any sort. What more could a Scotsman want? On second thought, don’t answer that. nYour classmate, Don n
