    Dear Donna & family, I'm sorry about Don's passing. I always enjoyed seeing Don in my office. He was one of the few people who laughed at my jokes. With dementia, you lose someone twice. I hope you all can find grace & peace. Your friend, Jim Abens

    Jeff and family: so sorry for your loss. I hope that sharing at least a few conversations at school and my dad's book on his experience with my late mother and her dementia were a little comfort, or at least confirmation that you are among friends who at least partially understand. God's peace to you.

    To a wonderful Uncle, rest in peace.
