    While I will be missing my Brother , Don! …Just knowing that He (by his passing) has received the everlasting Peace from all the suffering that He has endured over many years. Free now, to be rejoined with His wife Betty , who He has missed ever since She departed this life.. years ago!; along with their Children, Michael & Donell.
    Don, the many fun times …Cruises & Car trips that the four of us made (they will always be a cherished memory for Ione and myself!
    So glad that ,after some years of losing contact with each other,…we reunited @ the Navy Quarters, in Oakland ,Ca. Together, we made the very best of times….with many visits to Bannock St , in Westminster ,Cal.
    Now, My Dear Brother, May you rest in Heavens Peace…….AMEN!!
