"I?m sad to hear this. Don Doehrmann was one of the best people I?ve ever had work on my home. He did great work, on schedule, with simple and creative solutions to problems. He was as professional and as kind as could be. I will always remember him and wished I?d known him better. My sympathies to your entire family and friends who were so fortunate to have him in their lives. "

"I remember Don from growing up in the neighborhood on State Street. I have wonderful memories with Don, JoAnne, and family. I remember getting together with Jim and Diann to go fishing out at Allan's pond and Don would be out there too. Don and my dad had some good times too. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. He was a special guy. May he always live in your hearts. -Kim (Landuyt) Frahm & family"
