Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Lindsey family. Don was a very gentle and soft spoken man who would do anything for his family. Don was very fortunate to have family members care for him, especially Steven - his brother. He was with him throughout his life and right there with him at the end. Love, support and sympathy from Brian, Maureen and Kaley Shaw.
