  1. To the Family of Donald L. Hansen, It is with a most humble heart I extend condolences on behalf of Pueblo Elks Lodge #90. Shotgun was a true and loyal Member of our Order for 54 years! He will be surely missed and fondly remembered. As a loyal Brother he will be honored at our memorial service the first Sunday of December this year, where his name will be respectfully added to our “Tablets of Love and Memory”. All family and friends are welcome to attend.
    “A Noble Elk has fallen, pierced by the arrow of death. His trial ended, his faults forgotten, His virtues cherished, he rests in peace’�”
    Arthur J. Birmingham
    Lodge Secretary

  2. I was sorry to read that Shotgun had died. He was a very nice man–always cheerful with a big grin. I won’t forget him. God keep him.

  3. I am sorry that I cannot attend Shotguns funeral. The world has lost a very good-hearted soul. He has done so many helpful and nice things for so many people.

    I hope and pray that all of you will always cherish his memory. I know that I will never forget him in my heart.

    My thoughts are with you—–be strong—-God bless.
