  1. You were the best dad and will forever be missed! You helped make me into the person I am today.


  2. I am so sorry to hear of Donald’s death. I remember him from my childhood back in Edgebrook and
    Edgebrook Lutheran Church. Our parents were friends and his father was my father’s dentist.
    My sister also went to Wittenberg at the same time Donald did. There were six families that
    always had Easter breakfast at each other’s homes after the sunrise service.

    I am Judy (Herud) Nelson and live nearby at the Village of Victory Lakes, 1146 Arbor Circle,
    Lindenhurst, IL 60046. I look forward to seeing his sister June tomorrow.

    Sincerely, Judy Nelson

  3. What a wonderful person Don was to work with and just be a friend with. He knew so much about Leica and the job we did.

    He was very fond of his Daughters and grandchildren. Family was important to him.

    My sympathies go out to him family. As I stated he was a wonderful person.
