Kathie and I will miss Uncle Donald very much. His sense of humor and laugh always filled the room with joy. Every visit with him and Aunt Phoebe was enjoyable and one that you never wanted to end. The wonderfull gifts that he made for us will always be treasured at our house in a place of honor. Linda, Aunt Phoebe, and the grandchildren are in our thoughts and wish them pleasant memories. I am sure that is what he would have wanted for us all. Raymond and Kathie Wampler
