My sympathy to the entire Stein family. I have know Don (Smiley), and his family all my life, and golfed many, many rounds with him at the Kimball Golf Course, as well as bowling at Aqua Lanes. He always had time to visit, no matter what time of year. Even though I have not seen Smiley for a few years, I will still miss him, and all his great visiting. He always called me "Snowbird" because of my old CB name. Thinking of you always.
