    "Don and I were classmates at Cadillac High School. Although we were not close friends I remember him well. I think of his kindness and humor. He was a good and special gift. May God welcome him home and embrace him and say; “Welcome home Donald. Your life was ‘a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.’ Amen.’ Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. Fr. Pat Cawley"
