Connie,  We are sorry that we will not be able to be at Don's memorial. We both have medical appointments at 10:00 Friday.  We do want to say that we enjoyed our interaction with Don. He was a pleasant, gentle man. It was always a delight to see his smiling face, a response to our greeting.  We have been praying for you both as you traveled the road that ended on July 15th. Now he is at rest from his struggle. We will continue to pray for you as you adjust to this change in your life. May God grant you the comfort and strength through these days that only He can provide.  Our love & prayers,  Bill & Nanette Mosher

My condolences to Connie and the family. Loved playing golf with him at Grand Isle, and seeing him at church, his smile and warm loving personality will be missed. I am glad his pain is over and he is with his Lord - Jesus Christ.
