I worked with Don regarding the Cleveland High School Memorial Forest. I had a great time with him over many years. Don was a kind & generous man who gave time and patience to the CHS Memorial Forest. I taught at CHS for 27 years and I am very proud of that. Together, we have tried to keep the Forest a live in the hearts of today's youth. That is a tall order, but we keep trucking along. I will miss Don. Bless your family and you probably have wonderful memories about a wonderful man.... Sincerely, Faith Beatty

As we read the obituary of Don's passing, many fond memories of our time spent with Don and Jackie with the English Springer Spaniel Club surfaced and we were reminded of the very good times we had with such wonderful friends. As we moved further to the north end of the County and both of our families became involved with children activities and work commitments, we lost touch with each other but never forgot those times.

Our thoughts are with you Jackie as you and your family continue without Don.
