Dear Aunt Bernice, Karen, and Karla, I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Don's passing, but so very thankful that I've known him my whole life. He always had a smile on his face and an endless supply of jokes. Those Snyder boys were really something and I've always been very proud to have been a part of this family. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia and will not be able to attend the service, but I will be sending good thoughts and prayers your way. I love you all.

Dear Bernice,
Don was such a great encourager to me in rehab and motivated me to work harder and go further.  He had such a good sense of humor,  rehab fun , remembering good times in Economy and a great outlook on life.  Because of the humid weather we can't come.  I know you understand .  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.  May you feel the comfort of God's arms around you Bernice.
