    To my very dear friend Bill: Please remember how much your father loved and respected you. Take comfort knowing he is now with the angels. Also, use the following passage to help guide you through this most difficult time.
    ‘I am leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives.. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love me, you will be very happy for me, for now I can go to the Father, who is greater than I am.. I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do, you will believe in me.’

    Dear Bobbi and Family,
    We are still in shock to learn of Don’s passing. We knew nothing about it until the Family Reunion. Our memories of you, Don and your parents taking my sister and me in during summer breaks as children are precious memories to both Janet and myself. No sweeter or more gentle man has ever walked the earth as Donald Alquire. May your many years of love and togetherness give you peace and comfort… God’s speed,
    Doris, Charlie & Family NC
