I grew up with the wonderful Barker family in Salem, WV.  We went to school and church together  While in high school, Don came to my father's grocery store after school to deliver groceries and do various jobs  as his brother, Max, had done before him..  There was always much joking and laughter and one day when Don was sorting potatoes, he stuck his finger in a rotten one.  The entire store erupted in laughter.  Don did not find it funny.  If you have ever dealt with a rotten potato, you would understand.  Ah, the memories of growing up in a small town in a bygone era.  Blessings to Don's family as you grieve Don's loss.
