Janet and family and Malissa:  Don Berry...the one who loved life/his family and his opinions. He was one who always believed in what he said was the way it was. Loved by his family; and will always remember that big smile he had. His body wore out and God has now given him the rest. We are with you in prayers and thoughts during this time. Our love to all

Sorry to hear of Don's passing. I have a lot of good memories of him while chasing cattle and doing farm work with my dad and Don.  Love to all and I know my parents are excited to reunite with him again.  My deepest condolences to the whole Berry family

Words cannot express the sympathy I send you. So I will just say that I have you in my heart and prayers.  I am sorry that I cannot attend the service in person, as I have just returned from Spencer on the 19th, after a 3 week visit preparing my home for sale.  Please know that I will be there in spirit.  It would have been nice to see you all again.  Take care and know that I will keep you in my best thoughts and prayers.

Janet:Was so sorry to hear about Don.  Was glad to see you both at the fall reunion.  This is the
part of life I dread but we know where they are and probably much happier than us on this earth.
I send my condolences to you and the family.  Love Norita
