Mrs"D", Denise,Don, Donnie,Diana and Families,  We were so sad to hear of Mr."D's" passing. Such a caring, thoughtful, "Gentle Giant" to all who knew him.  He was a part of those we have known as our "Greatest Generation" who kept us all free, who didn't seem to talk about all they had done for our country.  He will always be a "Hero" to us.  Our love and prayers will continue for your precious family in the weeks and months ahead. Please feel our hugs,  Love, Ken and Cheryl Reimold
