Condolence: Avis, Judy and Betsy-
My sincerest condolences to you with Don's passing. I have great memories of all of you from a long time ago. The whole Graves clan always made me feel so welcome in your home and I remember those times as being filled with a lot of laughter and fun. I also remember times when maybe us kids did something we shouldn't have and Don peering over his newspaper to let us know that we messed up. As I remember it, he could get his point across with very few words!
Please know you are in my thoughts, both for the difficult time you are going through now and for those funny, funny times a long time ago.

Condolence: Our condolences go out to Avis, Judy, Betsy and all the rest of Don's Family and friends..Memories of Don extend to the service station and also the Elks.When ever I was at the station , Don was also very friendly , leaving a positive impression that my business was truly appreaciated. I was just in Hood River Oct 1st to Oct 8th and thought of Don and Avis , also Judy and Betsy wondering where they were and how they were, thinking that I would drop by and say Hello. Kevin Hay informed me that they had moved to thePortland area so saying Hello didnt come about..A fact that I now regret although he probably was too ill to have visitors. Perhaps I can visit with Avis , Judy Betsy on a future trip west..Cherish your memories .

Condolence: Dear Graves Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Don's death. He truly was a very kind man and a wonderful person. I remember the Crag Rat outings and the great times up at Cloud Cap. I hope all your memories are a comfort for you at this time. I will be out of town Saturday or I would be there to see you and remember Don.

Condolence: My deepest condolences to all of you. I had lost touch since moving to Portland, but you have always had a special place in my heart. Don was always so kind, caring and helpful. I remember more than once he came to my rescue when running out of gas. Hold onto your memories and know he will always be with each and everyone of you/us.
