My mind is in constant remembrance of a good man with a big heart that I’m always proud to say his name as a great friend.
Don and his beautiful family treated me as one of them with open arms and fondness. And to his family my heart greaves deeply for all of you.
And Maralina,my heart weeps sobbingly for your loss of the love of your life..
You are amazing, a rock and have shown so much strength in this time of hardship. I’m so taken back by your steadiness. I know now why on Monday, why your Don told me that you have been the best thing to ever happened to him…
My heart, my thoughts and soul goes to you and your family also
Joann and her family.
Rest in Peace Best Friend
