We are so sad to hear of Don's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. I have known Don since I was a small boy. Linda and I both have missed and will continue to miss him being able to come down and deer hunt. We have joked with him over the years telling him don't climb the hill to the woods, just sit in the back yard about the time of day you would be leaving and you will be sure to get one. Don will be greatly missed by all.
