Please allow us to express our deepest condolences for your family's loss. We hope that you will find comfort in the real hope that the Bible gives of being reunited with your loved one again. In the Bible at John 5:28, 29 it reads, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.". The Bible there promises that your loved one will come back to life again in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15) The Bible also promises that soon death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3, 4) We encourage you to visit JW.org for more information about this wonderful hope.

My heart is so heavy to hear of Don's sudden passing. This special man was not only my dad's co-worker but also our family's friend/neighbor for years. i grew up knowing and loving him. His wife, Nancy, was my mom's best friend. His daughter, Donna, was my buddy. Our ties and history are long & forever faithful/strong. After my dad passed away in 1982, Don was an exceptional father figure to me & my brother. We were a tight group. From parties to vacations. My childhood memories of him were truly the best! I always loved his laugh and stories. He was honest, hardworking, loving, caring, gave sage advice, & always there in time of need. Mom & I lived with him and Nancy for a good 6 months+ in 1996, after a house fire/rebuild. Their kindness knows no bounds. He will always be loved, never forgotten, forever missed. Fly high!!!
I love you, Nancy & Donna. Sending prayers & God's comfort for the entire family.

Don was the father of my lovely neighbor, Donna. My family was privileged to spend time with him and Nancy when they were visiting Donna, Scott, Eric and Troy. He always had a good story to share. I am glad we got to see him last year at the Lua. Our hearts are sad knowing we will not be hearing any more great stories from him. We send love and hugs and prayers for comfort for Nancy who was his Ying to his Yang. They were an incredible couple and we all should aspire to the example they set with their long lasting and loving marriage. Don and Mary Peake
