    Words cannot express the loss we feel. All of us in the Cocoa area will forever be touched by you. You and your family embraced me with love and compassion beyond my comprehnsion. I love your laugh, and your wit but most of all your commitment to enjoy what life had to offer even if it wasn't what you expected or wanted. I learned so much from you my friend. May your search be satified now. I want to thank you for my life because you saved it when I was at my lowest point in life. You were a God send to me and my children. To repay only a fraction of what I had gotten from you and your family I plan on giving the love that you shared with me to those who step into my life. I hope someday we will meet again... Love forever Rose
    To your family, thank you for the times weve had. I know how much you loved and cared for Don. May your hearts be filled with warmth and tender healing... Love forever Rose

    We will always remember Don as the "Smile" across the street, and now he's in a better place. Sending love.

    My big brother.......now and always. Over the years miles and our lives separated us but our hearts were always connected. The emptiness I feel is beyond my scope of understanding. My only solace is knowing you are at peace and your demons are put to rest.

    Thank you for the most wonderful gift anyone could have given me, our beautiful son. You'll always stay in my heart and I'll remember you every time I look at him. Rest in peace Donald.
