I was at work early on Valentines morning when we received a phone call from the West Yellowstone EMS requesting to speak to our ER physician.
We are their medical control.
We were informed that Don had suffered a cardiac arrest while ice fishing at Hebgen Lake.
His wife was at work in the OR. She too is a nurse.
It fell upon us to inform her of the loss of her husband.
Today he was taken to the cemetery with full Honor Guard.
He rode on the back of the fire truck, that was draped in black.
Covered with a flag.
I'm sure Amazing Grace was written just for the Bagpipes.
It is beautiful.
He was our big brother
and this leaves a hole in our hearts.
