    Sarah and the Jones family: I was heartbroken when I found out the news today about Don. He was such an integral part of Advex for so many years and was instrumental in developing our computer job cost system from scratch. I so enjoyed working with him and one of my most fond memories are when Kirk and I came up to your house in Lanexa to go fishing in the Reservoir. You would let us use your john-boats and after a day of fishing, we would come back to your place, have a few drinks and socialize for a while. He was a good friend to me and many at Advex. Heaven just got another Angel! He will be surely missed by all that worked with him and I personally will never forget him. May God bless your family and help heal you at this most difficult time.

    My dad was such a craftsman. I still remember Dad you letting me help you build those clocks. I was not very good at those type of things but you let me help. Missing the Skype conversations. Wow, today you would have been 79.
