RIP Uncle Don
Tuesday, October 26, 2010
My Friday will be spent driving to and from Uncle Don's memorial service - may he rest in peace.
WINTER HAVEN - Don Zimmerman, 82, died Oct. 25, 2010 due to heart failure. Memorial Srv. will be Fri. 10/29/10 at Lamb of God Lutheran, 901 Scenic Hwy. Haines City.
He has had numerous health problems over the past few years including a couple of bouts of cancer. His wife, Christine, is DH's mother's sister. They were the only members of MILs family that I ever got to know and I loved them dearly. At least once a year, we would drive over just to visit them for an hour or so. The boys loved them and they loved the boys. Although I took L to my SILs funeral back in April, I won't be this time. He should be able to catch the bus before we leave and we should be back before he has to get off the bus. My mother will watch S and be on standby to pick L up.
He and Aunt Christine were avid golfers and pretty good (including a couple of holes in ones) before their health starting failing. I unfortunately don't think she will last too long without him. They met during WWII in the Navy.
