So many memories come flooding back with the loss of a loved one. My favorite memories of Don are from times I spent on the farm in Cadet. I am so glad I got to see him when Aunt Mable passed. He never changed. All the family, expecially Lois, are in my prayers.

Tamra Perkins

I am so sorry I never was able to know you. You were my grandpa and I only met you a handful of times. It breaks my heart to know you are no longer here with us and I will never get the chance to know my grandfather. Please know I love you and will one day see you again. Love Tamra Lynn Perkins (Collins)
