Debbie -- I am so sorry about the passing of your father.  I remember sitting with the two of you under an umbrella and in the rain during one of the Canal Winchester Friday night concerts this past summer.  I chatted with your dad about his life, your mother and music.  He was looking forward to square dancing at Heather's barn next month.  Now, I know, he is dancing with the angels.  I am all my knees for you and your daughter.  May the good memories continue to sustain you and live within you.  Amen.

Deb & Allison
So so sorry to hear about Uncle Don.  He will be sorely missed.  So glad I got to visit when we came up for Pumpkin Show.  I am happy that he did not have to suffer(and you have to watch).

Thinking of you.
