I love Uncle Don so much. It is hard to believe that he has departed this life. However, he is with his Lord and love ones. I pray that the Lord will wrap his arms around each of you and give you the peace that surpasses all understanding and rest that only he can give. Love each and everyone of you. God bless you! Love, Shirley Stein

My wife and I were sorry to hear about grandpa Don. He was someone I looked up to and was glad that I had an opportunity to spend time with. I will miss him greatly and will think of him often.

Susan and I would like to express our deepest sympathies to Don's Family. He and Dollie were both wonderful, loving members of our Church Family. Most recently, during the pandemic, I was Blessed to catch up with him, in-person at Church. He was always a very faith-filled man, who led by example and quietly inspired us all in The Faith. He and Dollie are truly at home now with The Lord. May God Bless each of you at this very difficult time. Love in Christ. Dean and Susan Gibson

Dear Conrad Family, Please accept my deepest sympathies on Don's passing. I knew him through the Creative Writing group at SourcePoint, where I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the wonderful stories he shared from his life, and which I am sure many of you grew up hearing. I particularly enjoyed his stories about his starting out in life as a youg man, and his time in Service, as they sparked memories of mym dad and grandfather for me. Don made many contributions to our world, and he will be remembered with joy. I hope that when your sorrow is not so fresh, that, that joy will color your memories of him. With ayers and Condolences, Mary Lee Stocks

Uncle Don was very special person in my life in my childhood and as a adult . We would sit and talk and he would share his times at his work and where they went camping in all the states . We would visit them one weekend and they would come and visit us too. He loved his church too. God bless the family . My God give you all comfort and strength. Love you all.

Conrad Family, It is always sad to read about the passing of a neighbor. Dollie and Don were wonderful to us when we moved across the street on Powell Road. We use to feed the chickens when they went away. Their kindness will be missed. We extend our sympathy to the family.
