    I worked with Don for over twenty years and got to know him pretty well., When I think of Don, I think of a true gentleman, always with a kind word, always willing to help and always unassuming. Our deepest condolences to Mary Jane and the family.

    MaryJane, Ann and John,

    We are so sorry for your loss, especially in this time of isolation. May the Lord comfort you and strengthen you today and the days ahead. Know that you are in our prayers and hearts.

    I have many good and fond memories over the years of all of you: Donald and MaryJane’s wedding, our visits when you were in Superior and Lincoln, my stopover on motorcycle after college and lunch with Uncle Donald in Kansas City , and when Yolanda, Erik, Danielle and I stayed the night with you in Omaha.

    Peace be with you and yours as you grieve.

    Dallas and Yolanda.

    Mary Jane and Family – Karen and I hold fond memories of both of you and remember Don’s support as I was “growing up” in the Touche’ Ross practice. He was our “solid citizen” and go to for assistance and answers. Although we have not seen each other in recent years your friendship is fresh in our minds. I don’t know if you remember , but, a small remembrance of you and Don traveled with us to Lincoln, NE in the form of Lilly’s of the Valley dug from your yard. They still provide spring joy and the sign of renewal of life . We will especially remember Don this coming spring as they reappear. He will certainly, be missed but not forgotten Thanks for the memories. . All our love Rich and Karen

    My prayers for Mary Jane and family. Donald was 2 months younger than I and a favorite cousin as the “Stuhmer” family brood grew up. Many fond memories playing at our grandmother’s house.

    My sympathies to Mary Jane and family. I have fond memories of the family reunions and events over the years in various locations. I always admired my older cousin Donald who was always friendly and kind.
