Judy and Joe I'm so sorry for the loss of Don. This was a real shock to me. Scratch was like a brother to me. We went fishing, riding motorcycles, and a lot of other things. I always wanted him to come to Tn. to fish with me. We just ran out of time. Again so sorry for your loss

Although I never knew him, Donald “Scratch” was a very dear long-time friend of my father, Joe DiDonato. My dad spoke highly of him and often. He was a quality friend with whom my father always had a great time. He will be sorely missed. I’m so sorry for your loss and pray for God’s comfort to fill you in this time.

My condolences and prayers for the family and friends. We used to play football, basketball, baseball, flashlight tag on the NW end of town where we grew up together. We lost touch with each other until Facebook came around and I really wish we would have gotten together. Again I am so sorry for your loss....
