"I, as well as everyone here at Ride Solution will miss Don and his wisdom. He was always in tune to everything that was going on in town and would remember to tell me tidbits of info that he thought I needed to know. So glad he got to spend his last years with us."
"Don will surely be missed by his Ride Solution Family. I personally will miss his comment every evening at the end of his shift "I'm Home" as he shuffled through Dispatch. Fly high my friend, it has been a pleasure knowing you. Nedra"
