I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Vosse's passing. I work at Siteman in the registration for lab and he always was a kind wonderful man. I sure will miss his smile.

Many years since I last saw Don, However, I remember him well as a Cathedral HS class mate.. Vividly remember him on the football team and always with a warm smile om his face with a frequent chuckle. Rest in peace Don and much sympathy to your family.
