Somehow I missed the news about Dr. Griffin and just found out 2 hours after the memorial. He was the vet for my dogs for 20yrs..after I got out of the biz. He was the only Vet I trusted. I'm still in a state of shock over his passing. I'm hoping maybe we can get something together at Orange park park for him and maybe get a Memorial at the dog park there in his honor. I don't know who can fill his shoes. No one. Laura & Marshmellow and Rainbow bridge dogs Shadow & Sandy♥ You will always be remembered and loved Doc♥

The memorial sounds like a great idea. How would you go about making that happen? I also just found out about the memorial 45 minutes before it was over. I feel similiarly about Doc, he was the vet I trusted most. This is a huge lost for our community.

Our heart goes out to the Griffin family. Don has been a good friend growing up up in Midland. He was a fine classmate and great member of our Chemic football team and was always fun to be around. ----- Jack Hedelund & John Jackson
