    Dona Long –

    Jackie, I wish I’d gotten to know you. My kids all remember their Uncle Joe from when they were little. I think of all of Don’s brothers often and my kids have heard lots of stories about the ‘old days’. I’ve kept in contact some with Becky and a bit with Janice and Danny. Too many deaths in this family in the last few years. Keeping you and the kids in our prayers. Dona
