    Marty, I am so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. It has been a few years since I have seen Don but I think of him often and reference him as an example of someone that would get things done while taking care of people. He taught me a lot while I was in Memphis. His legacy will be remembered. Please accept my condolences to you and your family.

    Hello Marty, I was very sorry to hear that Don passed away last week. He was one of those larger than life people that I always thought would be around forever. Don meant an awful lot to me. He was always one of my most trusted friends. We had a lot of good times together when I was at the Memphis plant. I’ll miss him a lot. I’m very glad that I had the chance to see both of you at the Memphis party, the picture I took with Don and the rest of the “old timers” is one of my favorites. I wish I could be there for the service on Friday but unfortunately, will not be able to make it. Take care and again, my most sincerere condolences to you and your family.
