Dear Carol, Tammy, Jennifer and Kate,
Laura and I were so sad to learn of Don’s passing. I have many fond memories of him and his family as we grew up next door to the Winters and Gramp and Grandma. In my very early years, we enjoyed games of “Kick the Can” on summer evenings. Home base was always the front stoop of the Winters’ house. To this day, I am a car enthusiast, which I attribute to wandering next door as a youngster whenever I could to watch Don working on his prized Studebaker Golden Hawk.
Love, Guy and Laura Weik
