Dave, Storm and the rest of your family.
Don and Joanne were some of the nicest people I have ever known in this town . When they owned the Rainbow, Don always looked after us girls when we came in for dinner or just a drink . He wouldn't let anybody bother us when we were alone . I am really going to miss Don . He always had a smile on his face when I saw him . You don't find people like Don very often . He will leave a hole in the hearts of many of his friends , me included . My condolences to all of you .
