Leave Condolences

Martha: Did not know about Don in time to visit you and the family. We certainly extend to you and the family our sympathy and offer our prayers for you. May the void left in your lives be filled with God's grace and strength. I always enjoyed your visits to church here and seeing you both at Joiner's Chapel.

I would like to express my condolences to Walter, Stuart, Mary K, Martha, Tonya, Melissa and Vicky. I know you will all miss Don. I can remember working on the farm once when I was very young. I must have just been getting in the way so Don told me to go find a left hand monkey wrench. I also remember asking Don what time it was and he would look at his wrist, without a watch on, and say "It's two hairs past a freckle." My prayers are with you.

Sending our love and prayers for strength and comfort to Martha and family.

Prayers for Martha and family.

Sorry to hear about Don's passing! Please accept my condolences! Allen Wyatt Joliet, IL
