Nothing I can say that hasn't been said.He meant a lot to many of our members.So many nice comments about the man.

Reminds me that we should maybe take the time to let someone know how much they mean to us while they're still with us.Some,I know, would be embarrassed by the compliments.I expect he would have been one.

Not everything your neighbors do is wrong-Not everything they do is right,either.

He was quite embarrassed by the response to the post I made a couple weeks ago regarding his condition, he told me so. I got a chuckle out of it and told him it served him right.

Thank you cfpinz for that post you made, & giving us the opportunity to share our thoughts with Dun. CT will not be the same without him. Prayers for his family, May they draw comfort from knowing all the lives he touched.

A sharp stab in my heart. I share the sentiments you all shared. He will be missed, and always remembered. My wife and I visited him and his wife, and they were so very hospitable.

Bye old son..

Wow wasn't expecting this. A real kick in the groin. Loved the man like a dad and I think he was sort of "dad" to a lot of us. May the Lord receive you into his presence. Thanks for everything.

His presence on this board, is/was very much like the presence of that of Northern Rancher over on Rancher's. CT will be a very different place now.

So sad to hear this. I never met him in person, but felt like I knew him from reading what he posted. He was a very generous man.

Rest in peace Don. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers this evening!

I will alway know him as Dun, the glue that held this forum together, the person that was not always so quick to judge, the voice of wisdom and experience. We communicated about 3 weeks ago. So quick can good people leave us. He will be missed.
