    Don, you helped me so many times in my time of need. My car broke down twice and you came with your tow truck within minutes to rescue me. You were so giving. And, I loved the person you were with a gigantic heart and always making me laugh. I will never forget you and your generosity and your humor. I love you so much big brother. You are the BEST! I will never forget you and your el camino…and all your cool cars. I begged you to drive your white corvette….And, you let me!!! You will always be in my heart! “If Id of known you were coming, I wouldve baked a cake”….lol…that was OUR saying. Rest in Peace Brother knowing you made the world a better place by being You.
