    Donny,
    You were the only father figure I had in my life growing up and I appreciate that so much. You were a great role model and always made me me laugh. Thank you for always treating me like family. Even though it has been quite a while since I have seen you, I did have the pleasure of talking to you not too long ago, and I am so happy about that. Rest in peace Donny.
    Love Krista

    To the Williams family I had the true pleasure to work for Don and enjoyed every minute with him we would drink coffee together in the back of warehouse and talk politics and other things I really felt it was special and always enjoyed his colorful way of expression and his strength as a good fair man a (real American cowboy)I was and very saddened for our loss of a really good man but I thank GOD for the time I got to know him.
