We extend our sympathy to each one of the Redd children and their families.  We have been long time friends and neighbors of Don and Norma and shared lots of good times with them over the years.  These are the warm memories that make you smile. They were extremely proud of their family and that is their legacy. Now, they are both in the presence of God.

I was really shocked and sorry to hear that Don passed away. He was such a joy to have around when he and his wife was at Kingston before she passed away and then he would even stop in just to say hello.  He will be sadly missed, prayers out to his family.

"Uncle" Don was a very important person in my life.He was the last person left who remembered my parents. As a child, I saw him often at my parent's antique shop. Later on we would go to La Rue to visit their antique shop and go to Lee's Freeze. We had a lot of fun times!
My deepest sympathy and love to all of you-Susie
