I was sad to hear about Don, he was my co-worker and most of all my friend. He rescued 3 kittens, 1 girl( whom I took) and 2 boys 9 (whom Cindy took). I have many happy memories. Our prayers go out to Don`s family and most of all Bonnie. He is in peace now and watching down on his loved ones. He will never be forgotten. Listen and watch, for he will give signs that he is just fine up there. Just Believe. Yours Truly, Mary
