Don, I never got to know you but you where an awesome man. If anyone reads this tribute page and does not know you they should research your name and read about you. It makes me wonder, what have I done to make the world around me better? I have been living on this world longer than you were allowed and have done less for society. You have been my inspiration to do more for my fellow man. Thank you for that and thank you for your sacrifice.
