Donald was a loving husband, caring father, and fun-loving grandfather. He cared deeply for his children, grandchildren, and dogs. Donald had a very caring spirit, going out of his way to care for others and animals. They had a glass window that hummingbirds would sometimes crash into. Donald would go outside and care for the dazed little birds until they were ready to fly off again. Caring was in his nature and it's something that has greatly blessed the lives of those around him.

We'll share pictures, videos, and
of the process,
as we go.
Donald's ashes are back at the Eterneva labs, and we are ready to begin the journey to becoming a diamond. Now, Donald's ashes will be put into a crucible that will go through a purification process.
When that is finished, his ashes will be carbon in the form of graphite. This is the material we will put in the diamond growth cell to grow his diamond. In your next update, you’ll get to see the graphite as we open the crucible for the first time. Stay tuned!
Don’s ashes have been purified and are now pure carbon in the form of graphite. The purified ashes are on their way to Germany where the best of the best memorial diamond growth scientists work. There, they will put the graphite into a growth cell and then into a machine that mimics the earth’s mantle in pressure and temperature. Soon, we’ll be sending an update of his rough diamond!
When we lose a remarkable person, the most important thing we can do is keep talking about them!
The purpose of this page is to celebrate Donald. By recording stories about him, we allow future generations to get a sense of who he is (versus impersonal facts in an obituary).
