    I am so sad to hear of don's passing. I worked in the office and Miller -- and saw Don just about every day. I thought so much of him. He was always happy and caring for everyone. He did his job superbly ... and we all appreciated his efforts. He enjoyed caring for Ted H. They were a good pair. I sure will miss running into him around Eden ... always "Hello Miss Lily"... "how are you doing .. how is your family"... Don was a mighty fine person.

    Don had a heart of gold. Always had a smile on his face and always spoke when you would meet him any where in Miller. Few people have achieved the position of respect and high esteem which he enjoyed for so many years around Miller Brewing. Don't absence will be felt by the many who loved him for years to come. My deepest sympathy and prayers to his family. RIP Sweet Don.
