To the Payne Family,

We extend our deepest condolences to you for the loss of such a great giant in our midst. Our mother Eugenia Stevenson, former Liberian Ambassador to the Wash. D.C. extolled his praises and how dynamic he was to the Liberian People in helping to pass a critical piece of legislation at a most needed time for Liberians in the USA.
It was a very brave step, and thanks to him many lives could continue uninterrupted. May light perpetual shine on him.


Sincerely Yours,
Gwendolyn and Yvonne Stevenson

Bill and the Payne Family,
It made me sad to learn that Donald had gone on to Heaven because he will leave such a void here on earth. Since the early 70s, our paths have crossed at many political and social intersections in Newark, Trenton and Washington, DC. In all associations, I knew him to be a dedicated, humble and highly respected public servant. He has absolutely left the world a better place. To our benefit, his memory and his work will live on.

To the Payne family my wife Pat and I offer our deepest sympathy at the passing of our dear friend Donald. We have watched him progress from one successful endeavor to another, all with grace and dignity. Thank you for sharing him with us for so long. He shall never be forgotten.

To The Payne Family.

Deepest condolences from my family.

Words are inadequate to express how you showed your unconditioned love for the People of the Republic of Liberia - West Africa.

Thank you so much Congressman Payne for all you have done for us. You will surely be missed.

To Council President Donald M. Payne, Jr., Wanda, Nicole, Uncle Bill, Aunt Kathryn, Craig, Shakir, Don Payne, III, Jack, Yvonne and Samir; thanks a million for sharing your father, brother, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather with us. Liberians will forever remain grateful to you.

One thing I remember and will really miss about Congressman Payne is his "caring for people globally" and his "good sense of humor".

We all loved him but God loves him best. He is in a better place resting in the Bosom of the Heavenly Father. May his Soul and the Souls of all Faithful departed rest in perfect peace. May light perpetual shine on him. AMEN

Congressman Donald Payne: We have thanked you and commended your good works during your life, but in the aftermath of your passing, we send a heartfelt Posthumous Tribute and Salute to you on a Job Well Done during one entire life of service. You have served so many citizens so well and still had the compassion to make life better for animals through your admirable support and passage into law of HR 137 (2007). To the Payne Family, "Let your hearts not be troubled". Donald will always be New Jersey's Congressman, but now he has also assumed his new calling as "Heaven's Congressman", as he eternally rests from his earthly labors. Rest Well, Donald, Our Longtime Friend.

Thank you Congressman Payne for all your help and support for our wonderful furbabies. You will be missed. Prayers for your family and friends. God needed another Angel in Heaven. Walk the streets of gold with all other loving creatures.

Con. Payne was one of the most decent human beings I have ever encountered. I considered him a mentor and a friend. My heart aches at the thought that I will not have access to his compassion, wisdom and guidance. My life has been enriched by Con. Payne and I have truly been blessed to have known him. May his family find comfort in knowing how much he was and still is loved.
