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.
