I have been blessed to have Don as a friend. My favorite thing about him was him saying (more than once) children are so smart. I always taught knowing to listen to my students, they instinctively know how to learn. My prayers are going out to the entire McGuire family🙏🏼

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Donald. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)
