Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked at Baker Furniture for 6 years and when Don would come up to the office he was always in a good mood and could tell a good joke! He was a very dedicated worker and took pride I his work! I will miss running into him in Zeeland and sometimes Holland.

Being a neighbor I enjoyed Don's stories and learning the history of the area. Don was a gentleman and a joy to be around. I will miss seeing Don toiling in his yard and garden.
