I am missing Don. His smile on Christmas Day when we delivered his power chair scooter will always be a wonderful memory. He would always make me feel so special when he called me mom.

Don, as our family called him, was the first of my brother's six children. As such, he was very
special to me. I remember the first time I saw him, my nephew...a precious newborn. That was 72 years ago, just 12 days before my birthday. He was a beautiful blonde, brown-eyed little boy who loved to have fun, to my joy.
As he grew through the years, Don always had a quiet spirit and a loving heart.
As a Viet Nam veteran, he served
our country well and honorably.
Don was preceeded in death by his parents, Ted Donald Wilkinson, Sr. and
Marjorie Ellen Outlaw Wilkinson
Flournoy, maternal grandparents
Langford Marion Outlaw and Bennett Lea Outlaw, and paternal grandparents, Gladys Sudie Hitt Wilkinson McCurley of Beaumont, TX
and Thurman Theodore Wilkinson of Floydada, TX and his step-father T H.
McCurley of Beaumont TX,
Sisters Marjorie Lea Wilkinson, Patricia Wilkinson Lynn, and Donna Renee Wilkinson. He is survived by his sister, Susan Bennett Wilkinson of Tennessee, and brother, Stuart Alan Wilkinson of Victoria TX.
