    I worked with Don at FedEx. He had an innate ability to create smiles in those around him. He was able to de-stress the room he was in with his humorous comments. He loved this job like the rest of us do but he would always say he was going to ” quit this rinky dinky job” and got the rest of saying it too. His work ethic and sense of humor is already sorely missed.

    I look forward to seeing him again in Heaven.
