Memories Timeline


  1. We are praying for God’s comfort to fall upon each of you. We have fond memories of Donnie as a teenager playing in the creek that borders our property. We know he will be missed by all of you and are praying that you will be comforted by the many great memories you have of him.

    May God bless you at this time.


    Frank and Jennie

  2. Donnie…I will miss you terribly. You were such a bright and shing star to me. To his family…my love, thoughts and prayers surround you. Donnie…peace and love to you always! Love your cousin Jan from Georgia living in Alaska

  3. You grew up to be a nice young man and you worked hard to provide for your family. You will be missed.

    Aunt Jo

  4. I had known Don as a co-worker for the past few years. He was a quiet, hard-working, intelligent man who loved to talk about his family. I am truly blessed for the short time that I knew Don.

  5. Laurie… and entire Hanson family… this is such a shocking time for you. Alot will be said in an effort to try and lift some of your pain. None of us will know the right words and most of us will probably get it all wrong. Above all just know that Don has a long long list of friends and folks like us that have depended on him and sincerely appreciated him. Even in our business transactions one thing was certain… HE LOVES HIS FAMILY… AND EVEN IF SEPARATED, THAT ONE FACT IS TRUER NOW THAN EVER BEFORE. Be strong and depend on God to hold you when it hurts. He knows your real pain and understands more than anyone else. Your family will not be forgotten by others. Many of us will continue to pray that you find peace and joy again!!!! That is what Don would want for you all!!!

  6. Laurie, we are so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. Having known ‘Donny’ since he was a small boy, and watching him grow into a young man, husband and father, I have many precious memories of him over the years to cherish as I know that you do, too. Our thoughts, prayers, love and sincerest sympathies are with each of you. Di and Dan

  7. John, Deborah and family, we were shocked to hear the sad news, just found out tonight. Our prayers are with you and your family, for you know, his memories will be within forever as his angel will be looking down on you.

  8. John…and Family, I know this is a difficult time for all of you. If anything could be said to help ease the pain, I sure it would be said a thousand times over. Our Prayers and Thoughts will be with All of You, may God give all of You the strength You need!

  9. We will always remember how very invested in children and photography/videography you were! So many memories of the shenanigans you got up to at night when all of the other adults were asleep lol! Hope you’re somewhere very warm!
