    He never knew a stranger, he always looked for people to help even though the task seemed impossible. God Bless His Sweet Soul and remember him in that Golden City forever and ever-Amen.

    My prayers are with Don’s family in the loss of their dear loved one. I will always remember Don and his unique personality. His saying “If the Good Lord’s willing and the creek don’t rise…” always brings a smile to my heart. Working with him on the TSP Team at UAW-Ford NPC will be an experience I’ll always remember. May the family find comfort in the words of John 5:24.

    Judy, I am so sorry to hear about Don…I lost my dear sweet Jim a few months ago unexpectedly, and that has rocked my world. I do know how you feel, and I want you to know I’m praying for you for strength to get through this very difficult time.
