Norita, Mike, Mark and Michelle, Your dad was a wonderful Godly man and a mentor to me. He taught me so much as his delivery boy, his technician, a pharmacy student and a young pharmacist. I looked up to he and Jan Tootle so much. They were why I became a pharmacist and I have patterned my career after things they taught me. I now run my own little drug store in Blue Ridge Ga and I think of it as Don Aulds in the mountains. I am praying for all of you.
