    Don was one of the good ones. I always enjoyed seeing him at Brookestone. May he now rest in the peace of Christ.

    Mary and family,
    I love you all so much. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I’ll visit our lady Fatima statue here in Peru and sing a few special songs there just for Don. Much love.

    To the Erlbacher Family,
    Don was a wonderful person. He was so loving and kind. He supported his home parish of Earling and the St. Joseph family appreciated it. Mary is terrific also and I taught some of the children. God Bless All of You. Alma Esser Brewer

    I enjoyed visiting Don at Brookestone. He was a man of prayer and suffering. I enjoyed the time we spent together praying and praying the rosary. May his soul rest in peace. I will miss spending time with him.
