    My uncle Don always had a smile or laugh even when many would be sad. He loved music, travel and of course Ann and Darlene. He was a proud Poppa of Melonie, Justin, Brandon and Katie. His happiness was at its height when the love of his life my Aunt Margie was at his side. God bless him and all he loved.
