I will always remember Don as a man with a big smile and a great sense of humor. I can picture him sitting together with the other Belli men, looking down from heaven, sharing a beer and stories. We are all better for having known him. He will definitely be missed. Goodbye Uncle Don.

I will always remember Uncle Don with a smile. He had the best jokes and was always pleasant. He was kind and had a Big Heart. Joe's buddy. Love you.

Judy and family - so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. He was truly a wonderful person. I remember many a time that Donna and I would sit on the back porch and talk with him. He always had us laughing. My heart goes out to you. Tricia (Maye) Klein

Uncle Don was one of a kind. Such a wonderful sense of humor, such a caring spirit, such a loving brother and loving Uncle. Our memories of Uncle Don will endure the ages as we look back at so much fun and love. We love you Uncle Don. Looking forward to seeing you again as the Lord brings us into His holy presence.
