I've been thinking today about all the fun times we had together as cousins - the beach, the pool, making up dances to Michael Jackson songs, baseball, being at uncle Don and Aunt Lil's after school, laughing at his dry sense of humor, crying when I slid into and dented his yellow truck with my car when I was staying there and how sweet both were when I told them.

So sorry for your loss Schriber family. Prayers that God will comfort you all during this time. Also that the precious memories will be in the forefront of your minds. Love you all!

Prayers for the Schriber Family. My Uncle Don was a person of integrity and had a wonderful sense of humor. What I remember most of him was that he couldn't tell if it was Amy or Ann so he called us Twin. Whenever he would see us he would say, "hi twin how are you doing?" Uncle Don would never guess which one it was. I loved that about him and it always made me smile. I also love that he and Aunt Lil were always there for us in our younger days and after and their family has been such a great attribute to the Tawas Area Community. We will miss you Uncle Don. Rest in Peace. Amy

So sad to hear about the passing of Uncle Don. I am grateful I got to see him over the past year as well as some of my cousins and Aunt Lil. One of my memories of your dad is him calling me "twin". Since we were young, he was never quite sure if I was Ann or Amy. Your dad had a great sense of humor. I can see Uncle Don being greeted by Jesus with the words "well done good and faithful servant". My prayers are with all of you and may God surround you with his Peace and Comfort during this time of loss. Sending my love and hugs. In deepest sympathy, Ann

My Prayers are for my family for this loss of an honorable man. I grew up with him always telling me stories of him fishing or him piloting his planes. I loved him dearly and i'm happy that I got to call him my grandpa. He will be missed very much but I know that he is in a better place. And hopefully someday soon I will get to see him again.
