I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is hard anytime but here at the holidays just seems to make it a little harder. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all in the days and weeks ahead. Grandma Peggy thought the world of Don and I am sad to see him go. Please let us know if there's anything we can do.

Martha and Ken I am so sorry about Don I had no idea he was in a rest home.
I am. sorry I can't come to the visitation because I have pancreatic cancer and I stay in a lot of pain may God give you all His love at this time.
