Don and Glenda were our next door neighbors for about 10 years. They were special people. Everyone will miss Don. Praying for all the family.
Don was my parents neighbor. Don was the personification of what a good neighbor should be. He always looked out for my mother after my father passed away and was our friend. We love you Glenda and are truly sorry for your loss and will miss him dearly.
Our hearts and prayers are with each one of you. We pray that God will comfort you and warm you with his abundance of love. It sounds like Don was a true Christian, which means he was a blessed man who shared his love thru his family. We will be holding you close in our prayers as you say “see you soon” to your dad and your “Paps.”We love you.
Sorry to hear about Don’s passing. He was my bus driver when he was in college (I think) and I was in elementary school in Beebe.
Love y’all and will miss him greatly
