To Kitty and extended family,
I am very saddened to learn of the passing of Donny. He was a friend and all around great guy. I have so many cherished memories of times spent at his camp on Winslow Hill, especially around hunting season. I know that he is at the big card table in the sky enjoying pain free games with family and friends now. He was always a kind, generous and fun loving person to me.
May his soul rest in peace.
