Karen,we just heard about Don and we are shocked and saddened. This man was the brains behind Swanton's Farmer's Market and a loyal friend. We were all blessed when you both agreed to help with it. He was loyal to us all. Thank you for sharing him with us. Always your friends Rob and Josie Stultz.

Dear Karen, Kari and family, May the peace that passes all understanding be with you all during these days. I rejoice that he has now achieved the crown of glory and is at peace with his Lord and Savior. May your memories serve you as solace in the days to come. Just remember Jeremiah 29: 11. He is our source of strength as we travel through this dark valley. You have his staff and he will walk with you in this sad journey.

Sincerly for the Family of Don Neifer

Karen and family, so sorry to hear of Don 's passing. I have many wonderful memories of spending summer days with your family at Jim & Sandy's, especially playing with Carrie and Debbie and Dawn up at the pool. And who could forget the fourth of July when the boys had some fireworks go under a neighbor's car! You and your family will be in our prayers. Mom & Dad send thoughts and prayers to you as well. May God strengthen you and hold you in his peace.
