Brandi and Pat, I am so sorry for your loss. The last time we were home we ran into him, in a thrift store in Judsonia. It was great to see him and catch up.

Don was the very first friend Wayne met when we came to Arkansas, he accepted Wayne right off the bat , made him feel like a long lost brother, he had always made me feel like family the years Id known him. and getting re-acquainted with Don s friends and family and becoming apart of the Don Stewart family circle was a special thing . you were loved unconditionally and lucky to be a part of . we will miss Don and love him forever. and if were lucky we,ll see him again on the other side .

My heart is filled with sorrow at the passing of a great and wonderful man. Throughout all the years of working at Sexton, Donald, always had a smile and kind words to pass on. What touched my heart the most, was his attitude towards life and people. He truly loved everyone, and always, always saw the best in them. Although he will be dearly missed, it will not be long, before we shall rejoice with him when we all meet in Heaven.
