27: ... today we commemorate - not confined to one tradition, but instead we honor Don's love of nature, Native American culture, adventure, flying, being Irish and the well-told yarn. | My hope for Poppa Don is that he has a strong wind at his back, that his sails are full and he is pointed at the horizon with tales to tell at the end of a new journey. | ... it was a life-long journey to become the person he needed to be. That person was my grandfather, a father, a brother and a friend. He did not excel at all of these, but I can tell you from my own experience that he could've, would've, and with me, he did.

Sing out lout, Don, so we can all hear you! ~ Rosie. | Don, I am very proud to have had you for my "big brother" in our early years. You were there looking out for me from the wings...thank you for your guidance, structure, and patience. I think we were as close as "the times" and circumstances allowed. You have always been blessed with the "gift of gab with an Irish twist" and a wit second to none. I will miss all of that very much Out Lord has promised a place for us and now you are in HIS hands. Peace brother...Jack | Dear Donald, I did not expect to say goodbye like this, but you had to go before I even knew you were slipping away from us. I hope that I said "I love you" during your days on earth, but if I did not, I truly regret it! So, as you go your way, if you can hear me through this message, know that I do love you, and that I will miss you! Farewell, Godspeed, and I wish you peace! Fondly - Larry. | I love you, my brother! Rest in peace..Love, Maggie.
