We are so sorry about our Uncle Donald, but we have wonderful memories!

*Listening to him play his guitar or keyboard and singing Elvis songs
*Playing Acey Duecy
*Dinners at the Country Cupboard
*Corny, corny (but very funny) jokes!
*Talking about our favorite college team, the Michigan Wolverines!

He always brought a smile to our faces and our hearts! Uncle Donald had a big and grateful heart.

Until we see each other again in Heaven...

Sheila Balliet-Miles and Randy Miles
