    I will miss Don. I have known him for more than 35 years. I would go to the lobby and there he would be “springing” someone out of the jail. He was very reliable and dedicated to his business. Truly a well known icon in the correctional field in central Minnesota. He will be missed.

    Don, I am going to miss seeing you in the lobby, your stories and jokes, but most of all, your asking me where your cookies were. I would then tell you I was still baking them, as it took me a long time to put the O-R-E-O stamp on them. RIP and prayers to your family!
