“How did you end up marrying my sister Michelle? Don had his hands full with my sister. Don loved her very much.They had a beautiful daughter named Dawnyelle. Curly blond red hair. Don was a very calm person. He was a good mechanic and seemed to be able to fix anything. I remember being over their house and I parked close to their white picket fence. When I got back in the car, the door got stuck in one of the slats. I went forward instead of backwards and my entire door was pulled off. Not funny then. Don fixed it. He was a good guy, well liked. Love you brother. ” - Leslie Cathey (Wilson)
