I pray God’s peace and comfort are with Don’s family, friends, and co-workers! I worked with Don at Pitney Bowes for many years. Don was dedicated to driving his routes and I think he really enjoyed his job! Don was a first class individual ! I once led a driving safety class at work and when I asked if anyone had never received a traffic ticket the only hand to go up was Don’s! I am also a man of Christian faith and plan to look up Don in Heaven!!! ” Take me home country roads!” Sincerely, Bruce!
