So sorry to hear about Don. I was not able to be with you guys because Im a little ill at this time We worked together for many years. I got to talk to him before he went to heaven. We had a pure special friendship that was built thr trust snd respect. I will always remember Don as a perfectionist. It had to be right. And he did it right. Love you old boy. My heart goes out to Tammy and the family. And Donnell. Although I never met his girls and boys I felt like I knew them through him. He was a proud dad snd husband. Rest In Peace my friend
