Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing. I would see him when he came into the doctors office, before I transferred, and he always brought a smile to my face. We would talk until it was his appointment time. Such a sweet, kind, respectful, funny man. You will be missed my friend. Lesley @ CMC
