Fran and I are saddened deeply to learn of Don's recent death. When I served as Rector of The Church of the Nativity and St. Stephen (1974-2004) Don was not only a most faithful and dedicated member of the parish, but also a close and dear friend to me and to all the members of my family. I recall on many occasions that all I had to do was give Don a call or stop by at his home to visit with he and Nancy to request some kind of task for the parish and I knew Don would always be willing to help. Our hearts go out in sorrow to the members of his family, especially to Diana and Guy; may they know the consolation of God's ever present mercy and love as they mourn his loss. We will remember Don with much love and many cherished memories of our relationship over many years.
