Don used to stay active riding horses everyday, his whole life- horses name was Auckley and he was the one who won all the ribbons (Don "won some some ribbons" in his day). Don and his wife have been married for "what seems like forever". Don doesn't remember a time when they weren't together. He lived in Walkerville before coming to Chartwell Oak Park in Lasalle and really enjoys it there. Says he really enjoys the VON SMART Program and that it is lots of fun- isn't too hard but is challenging enough!
