My biggest supporter and my best friend, I miss you so much. If I'd had only known the day you came to see me would have been our last visit I would have memorized everything you said. I love you Wally and I will miss you tremendously.

There are not enough words to say avout how much Don meant to our family. Don, I thank God that you were apart of our lives. You were the best friend(brother) that James had. You were always there for us when we needed you, no matter what. Sue and Josh, we love you, and are praying for you both. Everytime we saw Don he would light up when he talked about you two. He loved you both, and were everything to him. We pray God comfort you two and your family.
