Very sorry to hear about Don. He was a huge help to our family when we moved to Cleveland. He could fix about anything, solve problems and was a good friend.
With my sympathy,

Dear Ginger and family,

We are so very sorry to hear that Don has passed away. I have such fond memories of Don. Ginger, you and Don were always so kind to me growing up. It was a lot of fun coming to your house visiting with Christine and not knowing what the day would bring. You added spontaneity to my life! It was our pleasure to be invited to your 40th wedding anniversary and to see you both so happy together.

We love you all and our hearts are with you during this difficult time.

Rick, Pam. Megan and Bethany Smeznik

Примите глубокое соболезнование в связи со смертью Дональда. Искренне разделяем Ваше горе. Скорбим вместе с Вами. Пусть Бог воздаст ему в небесах за все добро что он творила. Она есть и останется в наших сердцах....

Печаль утраты омрачила эти дни
Пронзительно...уничтожая душу.
Был рядом кто то...только вдруг он стал вдали.
Собою, будто целый мир обрушил.
Вот так бывает, кто то здесь, кого то нет.
Но самых лучших забирает вечность.
Звеняшей пустотой наполнится весь свет.
Но пусть ушедшим будет пухом...вечность.

Надежда Петровна и Сергей Михайлович Азаровы

Take our deep condolences on the death of Donald. We sincerely share your grief. We mourn with you. May God reward him in heaven for all the good that he made in his life. He is and will remain in our hearts ....

Grief of loss overshadows these days
Piercing ... soul destroying.
You were next to someone ... who suddenly became far.
While all around the world collapsed.
Changes arise, someone is here another is not.
But the best picks eternity.
The ringing emptiness fills the world.
But let the departed rest in peace ... forever.

Nadezhda Petrovna and Sergey Mikhailovich Azarov

May God grant Don eternal peace. What a good man! Great Husband, Father, and employee for GM. I would not be surprised at all if our Lord greeted Don at Heavens gate and said Well Done! Enter Heaven to your eternal reward. I'll always remember, admire, and respect your loving husband and father. God grant all of you His peace and cosolation.
Love you all;
