We first met you and Linda on the golf course and our last good byes the same. All the fun rounds of golf, vacations, marble games, pinochle and the trip to the cabin will be cherished memories that will never be forgotten. We will all meet again someday but until then may your wind always be quartering and your fist full of meld. Your friends, Gary and Linda (LG).

Don will be missed so much. Every time we play golf, cards or the marble game we will think of him. We are so grateful that we had two wonderful golf vacations with you two this past summer. Also his garden goodies he brought to the golf course were so appreciated, we hope he knew this. He was loved, Linda, and so are you!

Donald Michaels Is my grandpa or I called him my papa he was my world. It doesn't even feel like he's gone it hurts so much I miss him I've had so many memories with him If I wrote them down this would be hundreds of pages long he and my grandma raised me to be the person I am today. I had so many calleds with him every morning before school,knowing I won't have them anymore hurts alot. I miss him so much I pray every night talking to him hoping he hears me and what I have to say. But I'm so happy he's out of the pain he was going through. I'm forever going to miss him. I will forever love him. And I'll never forget him. I love you papa your my hero. I just wish you were going to be here for my kids and give them all the love you gave me and my brother.
