My deepest condolences for Don’s family and little dog. I work for OATS and got to know Don and his family through our drives together. Don’s little dog knew our bus and would come to the slider wagging her tail, happy to see Don home. He was such a joy to speak to, a kind soul, i will miss our conversations. God bless you all
