  3. We will miss Don at the CLC, he was a rock solid guy, who never had anything bad to say about anyone, he was very dedicated to his 3 day a week excercise program, and we will miss our heartfelt conversations as we walked the track. They don’t make them like Don anymore, he was certainly one of the good guys. Ron and Sally Lowe
