      Mr. Jones,
      This is Don’s youngest son Brendon. Thank you for the comments. I had forgotten about those jokes and now remember many times of listening to him and just shaking my head and laughing along. Good times.
      Thank you for the memories.

    Don was one of the kindest, most generous men I ever knew. He was a great neighbor and a joy to be around. We spent many wonderful hours at Don’s home watching Thunder games, and sharing meals and holidays. The world has lost a great soul and he will be greatly missed in our hearts.

    1. Paula and Randall,

      Dad always mentioned how you guys got together for food, fun and just general good times and conversations. He loved you guys dearly and I’m so happy that he had such a close friend group to spend his time with. He will be missed by us all.

    You almost always ended our talks with “Thank you for helping me. Thank you for being my friend.” And I always responded, “Thank you for being MY friend.” It’s a “Rainy Night in Georgia,” Old Man. Thanks for saving the last dance for me.

    “For the Good Times,”
    Your BFF, Paula
