I am Kevin Drake’s first cousin and had several family encounters with the Miceli family. They are a loving and thoughtful family. They welcomed Kevin into their family as their own child it was quite evident upon each gathering what wonderful people they are. I was glad that my wife and I got to spend a few hours with Don and Cathy this past April in Florida, as they made their way from Port St. Lucie to Port Canaveral to see Karen, Kevin and the boys off for a weeklong cruise. The world is definitely not as good a place without Don in it. Rest in peace. You will be missed!

Don's smile was the beacon of light that brought happiness to those he knew. It is difficult to imagine life without him. Words cannot adequately express our sadness on his passing, yet we believe he is smiling down on us, telling us to hit those golf balls "long and straight". Our deepest condolences to Cathy and family. Marc & Debbie Breslawsky

We loved Don from the first time meeting him. We have had so many good times together. He was a great husband, father, grandfather and most of all a very special
friend, more like family. He fought so hard. We are going to miss him so much.
Love MaryLou Tom

Growing up I always felt like part of the Miceli family and actually attended many family functions with Donald.
Over the years we fell out of touch as people do, but I still have so many warm memories of our times together.
So sorry that we missed the opportunity to be closer in our later years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family now.
