Mrs. Smith, Susan and Goeff, I wanted to send my respects to you all and any family. I was sadden to learn of Don's passing. I know my parents were good friends with you Nancy and Don. My father working with Don at Young & Bowman's and both my parents involvement with you both in the fire company. Also the friendships in our neighborhood. Lots of memories to go around! Again my condolences, John Arcade
