Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
My dear uncle Don. You will be missed greatly by Josh, Kara and myself. I was blessed to grow up next door to you and often in the same house. I was a pain in your rear most days and you forgave me to still be the best uncle. You held my babies. You opened your home and cottage to me many times. I'll miss happy hour with you and your wit that could crack up any room. May you rest knowing so many loved you and will miss you. - Posted by: Dana Borneman (Niece) on: Jun 25, 2023
