Don was very gracious to me and shared out Shuler Family information. I am from Washington state and he drove to Marion, Va. to meet with me so we could share our family history. I found him to be a very sincere and sharing person. I am sorry for your loss. He left you a great gift when he wrote his book. God bless Ruth and the family.
