Kay and Family we are sorry for your loss, Don will be missed dearly. We had met Don and Kay a few years ago at Mohegan Son Casino in Wilkesbarre, Pa. We had became very good friends . Don and I had played many hands of blackjack together. We are both avid blackjack players. We shared many meals together. We use to look forward to meeting Don and Kay every Saturday at the casino. We have not been to the casino recently due to my back problems. I am so sorry I did not get to say good bye to my good friend.
