So sorry to read of your loss/husband Don! My deepest sympathy to you and your family!

Nancy Vick on Dec 4, 2019

Dear Sharon and family, we are so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories growing up with my cousins. It was a time when the aunts, uncles and cousins all got together regularly for dinner and fun. Donny was very special and always smiling and laughing. Love and hugs to all of you. Tom (Frank) and Nancy Vick

I meant to say the Ham Boning Dept at Oscar Mayer where we worked together for 25 years. So sad.

Jerry&Sandy Barsness on Dec 4, 2019

We are so sad to hear about Don or as we all called him RedEye. Jerry worked with him for 25 years at Oscar Mayer in the Ham Boing Dept. We all became friends & had some great get togethers & some pretty wild. He had this gruff voice and when he laughed it was so funny with his humor. We are so sad Sharon & family because you two always had such a great time together.
