Clare, Reading the obituary brought memories of “Uncle” Don to life. Every encounter with him was inspirational and valuable to me. I recall the last time with him he lead a rendition of “in our parlor”. I think he and my father were the only people that knew the words. Yet I remembered them. I sang it to myself this morning in his honor. He was a great man. Our prayers are with you and the family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on Don's passing. It has been many years since I've seen him. He came with his parents to visit my family in Newton many years ago when I was a teenager. Don and I are second cousins. His father, John Slaven, was a first cousin and godfather to my late dad, John Reilly. Their mothers were sisters - Alice Mulvey Slaven and Mary Mulvey Reilly. My siblings and I have very fond memories of John Slaven playing his banjo to entertain us on his visits. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Slaven family.

Dear Clare and family, I am so sorry that Don has crossed over to that final basketball court. I always enjoyed seeing and talking with Don; he was such an energetic and vibrant man. I know his friendship meant the world to my dad and mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of what I know must be tremendous grief. Please know I'll be thinking of you in the months ahead as living without your beloved Don will have moments of great sorrow. With deep sympathy, Sharon & Doug Stewart
