    Don Ohlemacher was a kind, caring and fun-loving guy who no doubt positively impacted the lives of all who knew him, as he did ours. His presence brought a calmness, and his sense of humor made us laugh! We cherish the closeness our families shared whether it was camping, on a houseboat or visiting their home. Don will always be in our hearts, never forgotten. We would love to see a cure to prevent this from happening to others. Love to Kristie, Ashley and Kendall from Jim and Rhonda
