To Phyllis and the family, our deepest condolences. We remember you and Don from Church of the Dunes in Grand Haven, MI and his work with Habitat for Humanity there. What a wonderful legacy he leaves with all whom he touched in this life. Praying that you feel comfort from the many prayers going up for you, and peace that he is with his Lord now.

Mrs. Muyskens, I am saddened to hear of Don's passing. He taught me so much at Metro-North. Once you got past the gruff exterior he appeared to have, he had a huge heart. I have many fond memories. One favorite was concerned getting a spouse train pass for you. He told me the pass office was requiring a copy of your marriage license. He laughed and said he's been by my side for 40 years, that should count for something. I am so sorry for you loss.

Phyllis.I loved ripping things down and rebuilding at the church with Don - one ceiling and kitchen down stairs I especially remember. Always loved his dedication to NUMC. Timothy Murphy
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
