  2. I am so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. We went to Fenton High School together. We made some great memories back then. What a sweet kind soul he was. He gave me my first serious valentines card in 9th grade. I still have it. I have often thought of him but never knew where he went after high school. Heaven has received another angel for sure!

  3. Don was my best friend all through high school. I lost touch with him after our first year together at MSU, and I regret never connecting. He was a good and loyal friend …. bright, and always full of fun. He will he sorely missed!
