Neetz and family,

I was saddened to hear of you families loss. I meet Don and his family several years ago and learned that he had bought our families house on Elm street. I shared some of my secrets about the house and enjoyed our many visits. I know the thoughts and prayers of many are with you during your time of sorrow.
