  1. I was saddened to read of Don’s passing although I can only imagine that his later years were not all that great for him. He is obviously in a wonderful place now … and with Margaret again. I so enjoyed them as a couple at BFUMC. I found them to be such a dear, sweet, fine couple. My thoughts and prayers are with you as the family adjusts to your loss in the days, weeks, months ahead.

  2. So sorry to hear this Doug, Emily and I send our prayers.

  3. Thank you for sharing your parents with me, the last time I saw them both was Halloween of 1996, we always meant to get together….soon. Doug and Martha, sorry for your loss
