Messages of Condolence

  1. Mary Schwendner Ridarelli condolence:

    Sorry to hear about Don’s passing. He was a good brother and an experienced cook for barbecues. I can picture him from our home movies waving, and cooking hot dogs, etc. for my summer birthday parties in the yard, when I was younger. Sometime everyday memories can mean a lot to us, when we look back at them. 🙂 Mary Schwendner Ridarelli

  2. Laddie and Carol Zalud condolence:

    Dear Marge, Mary, Dave, and Family
    We are so deeply sorry to hear the bad news of Don’s passing. Laddie fondly remembers cousin Don for his wit and cheery sarcasm (and accounting help!).
    He was a welcome addition to our wedding party over 50 years ago. We are in Germany and will not be able to attend his memorial services. All of you are in our thoughts during this sad time. Laddie and Carol Zalud

  3. Howard & Lorelei Bobroff condolence:

    Dear Marge and Family,
    We are so sorry to learn of Don’s passing.
    It was always good to be with Don and enjoy his spirit.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Lorelei and Howard Bobroff

  4. Kathy Colohan Novy condolence:

    I am so very sorry to hear of Don’s passing. Joe Smith told me today about it and I am still in Dubuque Iowa celebrating my 50th class reunion. I feel so sad that I will miss his wake and funeral Mass.

    I always enjoyed the way Don would tell a story…he had such a wonderful sense of humor even when we were all back in high school. I am certain he will continue his story telling up in heaven ❤️❤️
