A man of creativity: I will never forget his hand made motor home on a flat bed truck. Second to none and felt just like home.

A man of intense quiet strength: Don was not a big talker but one found themselves always listening intently while in his presence. Always felt peaceful around him also.

His presence on this earth will be missed and remembered fondly. Getting to see him again in heaven will be a pure joy.

Don will be missed so much,especially at Fosters Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. Everyone there loved him so much. He was thought of as kind,sweet,and just an all around awesome man. I am so thankful that I came to know him and thankful for all the special talks we had. I will always be so grateful for the way that he loved and helped take care and watch over my mother. She loved spending time with him and Emo. They can just take over where they left off because I know momma is waiting on him in Heaven. This isn't goodbye it's just see you later! Love you sweet man!
