  25. Don, Betty, and family,

    I remember David from high school and I don’t recall a time that he didn’t have a smile on his face. A friend of mine on Facebook whose husband plays poker with him posted a picture of David and the other at the table, and I could zoom right in to him because there was that familiar smile. Please accept my sympathy during this time and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
