Donny's final quote: "Everything is going to be OK". Online condolences may be expressed at www.witkoppfcs.com Poem written by Donny's Sister-in-law Dawn Liebergen The Room in my Heart There is a little room in my heart Where I hide feelings, hurt and pain, I keep it locked up most of the time Until its walls begin to strain. When the pain becomes too much to bear I know the time has come once more, To find a place to be alone And carefully, painfully, unlock the door. The hurts and pains come tumbling out It takes my breath away, But, I know that I must face each one For fear I'd not make it through the day. The loss of a husband, depression and loneliness Wash over like a cloud of doom, As I sort out, and deal with The memories in that room. I deal with each memory as it comes, Hugging myself, shedding my tears, When, finally, I feel the cloud disappear, And along with it, my tears and fears. So, I take the key and lock the door Of the room hidden deep in my heart, And, hopefully, it will be a very long time Before the room is full, straining to break apart.
