    I am sad to hear of the passing of Don. He was a very special man to me. I attended NADC in 1985-1986 and was honored to work for him at his service station on Dickerson road. Don and Shirley were always good to me and were parents to me while I was away from home. They even took my wife and I out to dinner at Calhouns when we visited Nashville after getting married in 1987. He was good to me and I will never forget him.

    To the family and friends of Don Atkinson. Please know that I am sorry for your loss. Don was such a pleasant person who I got to know during Thursday night bridge at Vanderbilt. My heart and prayers go out to all those who loved and cherised Don. God Bless you all.

    Many, many fond memories of the Atkinson home and the two beautiful souls that lived there. Our love goes to the family as I know it has to be a difficult time, but know that he is finally with his long time love Shirley!
