Dear Martha Neal, I know Don and my dear Mother are having a reunion in heaven. I am so sorry for your loss. You were certainly blessed with a long and beautiful marriage.I shall always remember how Don gave me all those "learning to drive" pointers as he saw me wheeling around in our backyard......afraid I was going to run right over into your house. And those Cherry Pepsis he made.....I have never had a better one in my life.Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. You will be lonely, but remember God will never leave you or forsake you. I know, as my dear Ray has been gone nearly 14 years. God bless you.
Love, Janis Henderson Overton -
