I've explained it to the few that really get me in this life, but as much as they get me, they don't get what u meant and still mean to me. The crazy stuff I've seen and experienced from you since you've been gone is incredible, and breathtaking...and only makes me believe that much more in so many of the philosophical epiphanies that we explored and realized together. “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
? C.G. Jung

I owe you more than I can ever express or make anyone understand for how our reaction transformed me. I'm so blessed to have had you in my life, as short as that time was. I can't thank you enough for helping me be me.

After I typed and erased the book I wrote all I can say that really matters is what I say out loud when I'm alone and can't pretend this is ok..."I miss you Donald". I wish things could be so different. But I'm willing to wait a lifetime as long as I CAN see u again somehow sometime. :) it's crazy like that...the way two souls can come together...but not be together the way we express this life. Here's to hoping... :)

I KNOW you would love this song! I listen to it often an every time, my dear brother, I think of you an the tears just flow. It Doesn't matter when or where i am at. And for some unknown reason I force myself to play it all the time. I miss you Donald

I'll never forget when you let me stay with you that summer just so I could play baseball on the all-star team in Indianapolis. You gave up that summer to make sure I made it to my games and practice. Rest easy, uncle!

July 01, 2013
Many of us still think of you often, daily for some, and still find it hard in our hearts to accept your passing. May you know the love that still yearns for you now, from so many, in so many forms. I want to light a candle for your soul tonight. May you be at rest, at peace, and know how much you are loved and missed by so many. We will all do our best to take care of each other, and reach beyond our previous boundaries to find new friends to share memories of our loved and cherished DJT. May your smile and laughter be upon us always!
June 29, 2013
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun always shine warm upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand....

It's late and dark. Breeze is blowing outside. Your on my mind, as I'm sure your on many others. I know we will all be better in time, but time can't seem to come fast enough to see you again. Too soon...I never imagined you would be gone now. We love and miss you dearly DJT.

I miss you so much Donald... This hurts bad, but we will meet again! I love you
June 22, 2013
I wanted to keep your guest book online indefinitely so we all could light a candle to you and have a common place to share our love and memories. In this digital age, I wanted Riley Marie to be able to pull this up instantly whenever she wanted to read about how much everyone loved you and cherished your friendship. May we all remember your smile and laughter, your love and authenticity.

O Tate, I hate that you are no longer with us, it truly is a shame and you are going to be sooo very missed! I will never forget your amazing hospitality you showed myself and my family when we became neighbors in 2005. Since then we have grown to be great friends and had amazing summers in the back yard! I will never forget the laughter you brought into my family's life and we will all miss you dearly! R.I.H The West Family
