Our friendship began when I roused Donald out of bed on his 1st honeymoon morning (with Sally) 66 yrs ago…to take me hunting. He loved me anyway….and has been a big brother from then on. He will be greatly missed. All who knew Donald loved him and Donald gave me the Bostwick Family…thank you. Rest in peace in God’s arms…my brother. Well done…good faithful servant.

I am saddened to learn of your dad’s passing. He was my first supervisor in the real estate division at the Corps of Engineers. He was a friend and a smart, no nonsense problem solver. My wife and I took more than one fun trip with he and Lorraine. He was a man of integrity and I am thankful to have been his friend.
