Dorothy and family,
My wife Dianne and I met Donnie in 1996 when I switched from Gloucester lodge to Warwick. Donnie was always very respectful to us and we helped him out whenever we could and we missed him when he moved to Virginia Beach. His passing leaves our ranks emptier but memories richer. May light perpetual shine upon him.
