Had the pleasure of knowing Don and Nancy for over 20 years. Worked with Don at Interface for 10 of those years. I've never known a nicer couple; and Don was always willing to help in any way he could with any issue. He was a very humble and kind man. May he rest in peace.

Known Mr. Don since Mike and I became friends way back in 6th grade. Always friendly and kind to me; but the thing I appreciate the most was he always caught up with my father at the little league baseball games, chatting things up while Mike and I practiced or played. He would always ask me about my dad anytime he saw me. As you get older you appreciate that more than I probably did at the time it happened. I remember his visit at My dads funeral too. Always cordial and kind. Obviously you can tell a lot About him by the good family he raised. Rest In Peace Big Daddy Don and thank you also for your service to our country.

Nancy, Tyrone and I want you, your children and your grandchildren to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Praying the Lord will comfort all of you and know that He will always be with you and never leave you. You both have always been so thoughtful of others and now we remember you especially at times like these when your hearts are so heavy. Love and prayers, Tyrone and Glenda Smallwood
