Dearest Betty, I just read in Sunday's paper of Don's passing. I am so so sorry I know you were soul mates, I don't drive so I won't make it to the funeral home, but you will be in my prayers as you always are! Please know that I think of you often and when I was working always told Brad to tell you Hi! Love you and take care! I will be in touch!!!
