Donna and family, I am saddened to learned that Uncle Don has passed away. Uncle Larry told me the bad news. My grandpa Fonzy Griffin was Uncle Donald’s brother. I remember very little about Uncle Donald but do understand we were all very close at one time and spent sometime at get together with Uncle Rayford, Mattie, Uncle Donald and Aunt Collean. It is never easy and letting go is the hardest part. Yes he will be greatly missed, until then I pray for God to watch over you and your family and get you through this. It’s only a matter of time but the the good news is, it’s not for ever!. Until we meet again in heaven where we be reunited with all that have gone on before us. It will be worth the wait, God Bless you all and again I am sorry I couldn’t be there.
Much love and in our thoughts
From Janease Griffin and family
