Funniest, Smartest Man Ever

Don and Jean were lifelong friends with my parents. I used to enjoy our trips to Pomona to visit them because Don was a genius with everything he did. He was so happy all the time and always had the right answers.  He told a story one time that really stuck to my mind. He talked about a person that painted his car with a brush and it turned out beautiful. So this other person tried it on his car and Don said it looked like he painted it with a broom ! Hilarious.  My parents never had one bad thing to say about them. They loved them both dearly. I remember their daughter Barb would read me stories when they visited. Well once anyway. lol. Gonna miss them, but they are very alive in my memories.
