To: Don Mackey and all others

Remember the memories of what Don and others gave us to look forward to on a fire, even in the worst
times Don made us laugh, cry, and realize all the little detail in life. He was a father, loving husband, and a lad that strived on the mountain. I
realize now that since Don passed away my freshmen
summer of high school I never got to know who he was until one year later I was out in Missoula. This is to you Don, for everything of what you have done for others and myself. As I figure out of what I want to do and that is one thing, a U.S.
Smokejumper for life, and hopefully I will bring out the happiness of what you brought the gang. To
those with you, like Dodge and others thank you for showing us the ways of a true spirit helping and guiding us to what we strive at best....
