Donald Pacholka her eldest son was also laid to rest.  Here is a recent photo of them prior to their passing: Donald was the family comedian, because he always had something funny to say. We will miss his laughter.  He was a very generous soul to the whole family.  He took months out of the year and travel long distance to help care for Mom and Dad. He was a wonderful son and brother to us all.  He was 65 years old.
