    The quality of a life is measured by lives positively influenced, the quality of children raised, and example of life choices made. I’m sure many others but to these add all the others and you have the sum total of who Don Gorsuch is in the hearts of those privileged to have known him. The better part of the years I was privileged to know Don, he lived with pain, he never ever gave in to pain; he worked, played and functioned as if pain free. I’ve known many good men in my life but none who were better. He leaves a high standard for us to aspire to; as a father, husband, business man, neighbor, friend, citizen and patriot. I suspect on Monday April 17, Don heard Jesus say what we all hope to hear said, “Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come enter into the joy of your Lord.” Matthew 25:21.
