Dear Lynne and girls , What a time of mixed emotions! Saddened for your loss yet rejoicing Don is whole again and with his Lord and Savior. Thankful Lynne, that you and Don moved back to this area and made some very special memories with your family! We are thankful that we connected again. Both of us have known Don and you since our teenage years. Lots and lots of good memories. Our prayer is that you all feel God's love and our love for you. We are not saying goodbye but saying see you later Don. His earthly life blessed many. Always there to help and serve. Well done thou good and faithful servant!

So sorry to learn of Don’s passing. He inspired me with his good nature and pure thought. So many wear faith on their sleeve, Don wore his with actions and in truth. Just like old times, my friend.

Whether it was from the Blackhawk Choir Baritone section or from behind his trombone every Easter, Don's cheerful participation in the worshipping church was a constant joy to me and to everyone who got to worship with him. This is such a loss. I carry you in my heart, Lynne, and wish you peace and the comfort that only Jesus can bring in the days ahead. Don is experiencing fullness of joy. Glory!

Dear Lynne & Family, What a gift Don was to our family and business. Don was family. Whether he was sharing crullers (better on your hips than mine), sharing pictures of his grandchildren as his favorite screen saver , or sharing his wisdom (Donism’s), he always brought a smile to our office. He was a man of faith and integrity and extended generosity and kindness. This was evident in how he treated customers, co-workers and members of their families. Don would melt when children or pets visited the office - he was such a softie! After his retirement, we would look forward to his visits to catch up with “The Boss” and give Cider his treats. We count those days, from 3/17/03 to his retirement on 6/11/12 as a God-directed blessing from a man who lived close to his Lord Jesus. Love, Barth & Jodi Zurbuchen
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Don was a special man, who although in the presence of Jesus, will be missed here. As grandparents of a baby you fostered we were so thankful for your loving care. We also have fond memories of our Blackhawk cycle rides with you. Our sympathies to you, Lynne, and your family. Jochen and Bonnie

Lynne and family, Thinking of you during this most difficult time, Don was such a great man. So loving and caring and patient. It takes special people to foster children and we are so fortunate that you were a part of our lives. We will be forever grateful for the love and support you gave us through our adoption journey. May Don rest in peace knowing that he has left such a great legacy. Take Care, John, Lisa & Joshua Johnsrud

Lynne and Family Sunshine and I are praying for you and your great loss. We have many incredible memories of Don. He was such a great man with an incredible sense of humor. Always wanted to make the person he was talking to feel better about whatever it was that they were talking about. His acting ability for family fusion was a hidden talent. We’ll miss Don a lot. We won’t be able to attend the service; but will be thinking and praying for you. We love the Miller Family so much. Chris and Becky Dolson
