We have reached our maximum capacity on dinner space of 100 people. Anyone that did not RSVP prior to August 7th cannot be guaranteed a chair at a table or food unless we have “no shows” due to unforeseen events.
However, feel free to come and take your chances and/or see the program on Don at least which will probably start about 6:45. There will be plenty of time to visit with attendees after the program.
Don didn’t like funerals so this won’t be a sermon or tear-fest, better reserve the date or you may have regret! It will be a celebration of a life well-lived and ending too soon at 72 years. We will share food and beer, tell stories of Don, and when it is over we will laugh through our tears. By all means, wear your jeans (or other casual dress), your tennies and a hat because Don would like that! He liked the outdoors, so we will meet at a hill country spot. Don’t worry, we will have a/c and won’t be too hot! We will watch the sun set, say our farewells, and promise to meet again in God’s heavenly site, reserved for good ol’ country boys and girls who did what was right.
Don’s family from Cedar Park, Dale and Duncanville, Texas, and sister from Tennessee will be there to meet. Also, Martha’s family from the Austin area, Houston, Dallas, and Wisconsin will be there to greet! You see, Don was loved by so many from near and far, and he won’t be forgotten not even when apart.
Don liked to rhyme and was better at it than I, but I think he is smiling at me for giving it a try.
