    I will always remember Mr. Blancett for having a smile on his face and a joke to share. I have fond memories of fishing with Don and Steve and Mr. Blancett would clean the fish as fast as we could real them in. I have many great memories of the Blancett family. Until we all meet again God Bless.

    Aloha to our Nebraska Ohana. Donald was my older brother who was often estranged by distance but always in my heart. Our sister Leah told me of his passing today, and we shared memories.. Because of the miles and years, there are many gaps to fill in the story of Donalds life. Your father and grandfather was a wonderful and generous brother and man.Perhaps you would like to talk story sometime and we can bridge those gaps. Donald Jr and Steven, we practically grew up together… we have some common memories of our own to share. Travis, Justine and Amanda, we met once when you were young. My thoughts are often on .Brenda and you boys. I miss you all very much. Email Diane and me We can talk on the phone.. Maybe one day you will visit Hawaii and we can show you around Kona and the Big Island. Please send us a note or call…. Keep Donald alive through you. With aloha, David and Diane
