Deepest sympathies go out to Judy and the family from Leona and I. I wish I could have taken mom to the service but in her current condition it wasn’t possible. She did get to watch the service from the care center which was really nice. I would love to share the video with her if it’s available it was a little hard to see on tablet. What I could see brought up great memories growing up and going out to the farm. I always marveled at Don’s ability to fix anything with whatever was laying around the garage.

Love from John and Leona

Sending prayers and healing for all of you.
I spent so much time out at the Matthews’ farm. I’ll never forget the Halloween haunted house they did, the night games we played and the many meals and memories shared. Don was a great husband, friend and father. I know he will be greatly missed. I hope the Lord brings you peace during this difficult time. Lean on him and your friends and family.

My heart fell the day I heard the news! Our boys Nate and Terry spent lots of time together; Theresa babysitting for us. Brought our families together. Not that long ago I came across the photo we took in our back yard with the Boehler's the week before you moved to Dickinson. Don was a very caring giving man who did his utmost to provide for his family! I pray that the good Lord will give you peace and comfort in the coming days as you go through this journey. God Bless each and every one of you--Judy, Theresa, Tom, Terry, Tammy and Tony; significant others and family. Virtual Hugs to you All! Love Brenda Blasius
