"To the Family of Art Donovan, My deepest condolenses . I'm sorry for this late message, but just found out Mr Donovan had past away. I did not know Mr Donovan personally, but would often watch the Johnny Carson show, and Dave Letterman and watch Mr Donovan. Mr Donovan was a down to earth guy, and was very funny. I can honestly say Mr Donovan brought a lot of laughter in my life. You should be very proud of Mr Donovan a great athlete, Serving Our Country in the Marine Corp, and being a great guy. See you in Heaven Art Donovan."
