    Condolences to the Family of My Uncle Don, my last uncle on both
    sides of my Family from my dad and my mother.
    I have fond memories of the visits I had in Tennessee with all
    of my Saunders family from a young kid and thru the years gone by.
    Last time I saw Uncle Don was in 2008 on a two week visit and at that
    time saw most of the Family at a restaurant get together or at their homes.
    I was lucky to have seen my Grandparents William and Fines Saunders.

    He was a wonderful man who will be missed by many. Mr. Saunders was like a second father to me. I spent many hours in his home during my younger years. Even his dry humor didn’t deter me. I hope that the whole Saunder’s family can be at peace with his passing. I know he loved each of you dearly and that you were his life. May God bless his soul.

    My condolences to the whole Saunders Family. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I fondly remember our family visits with the Saunders family in TN. We had fun and I always felt surrounded by their warrnth and love.

    Last time my Dad and Uncle Don I remember, being with the two at uncles kitchen table drinking coffee, they both had me laughing big time, several hours at uncle’s kitchen table. The way Uncle Don described their younger antics they were remembering was very funny, I will never forget. They both will be a loss to me forever as along with the rest of Uncles, Brothers, and Sisters. I have to remember not to say the baby of the family, but the youngest of the family. I stood corrected by Uncle Don.
