Cooper and Morgan's graduation from Lees McRae was an awesome weekend. The "get together" afterwards was so nice. The trip to the vineyard and just hanging out added to the weekend. Many great memories were made. You have a wonderful family. Our thoughts, prayers and love are sent your way.

I remember a lot of fun times we had with Uncle Don as kids. Which I will never forget. As we lost touch as we got older. There is never a day that goes by that I didn't think about my family. He was a good family man, and a good uncle. We will never forget him. My thoughts and prayers are with Sharon, Cooper, Tucker, Mom, Aunt Dee Dee and Uncle Bobbie. We love you all. RIP Uncle Don.

I talked with Don four days before he passed away. He knew his situation but was at peace. I am proud to have called him a friend for over 40 years. We should all learn a listen from him on being a great husband, father, brother and friend. He put me at ease during that call. That says it all. We will drink some Turkey again. Your friend and roommate, Scott

MY SYMPATHY IS WITH YOUR FAMILY IN YOUR GREAT LOSS. MAY YOU BE GIVEN THE STRENGTH YOU NEED IN THE DAYS AHEAD.

My deepest condolences to the Price family. Growing up in the same neighborhood and going to the same schools, Don was loved by all who knew him. He was one of the sweetest, funny and just easy going guys I've known. I lost touch with a lot of people after high school, but thanks to FB , was able to reconnect with him. We all were so glad to see him at our 40th reunion, not knowing that would be the last time. My heart goes out to the family and friends that loved him and I pray for comfort and strength through this very difficult time. RIP Don! &#10084;&#65039;&#128591;&#127996;

I remember what a kind heart and fun guy Don was. I got to hang out a bit with him in high school as well as visit him at UF and he was always great fun. Condolences to his family, I am certain he will be sorely missed.
