It saddened me to find that you had left the Earth and didn't had a chance to see you again after those years we had at Ohlone College. We had shared laughs, crying, and a long good conversation. We had classes together when I was a student at Ohlone College. I will never forget your generousity. Thank you for a sweet and short memory of you and I together at Ohlone college. My sympathy is for your family and friends who had wonderful memories being with you. My thoughts will always be with you, Donald.

I will forever remember your kind and infectious bright smiles. You always had the kindness in your nature inside and out. Whenever you spoke, nothing but innocent words and meaningful thoughts came out of you. I will always cherish our intimate conversations we had about our current lives and life experiences when we had growing up deaf in San Jose.

Now, I could only wished we had and could spent more time together.

I now will miss you for eternity.

You are one I know from Leigh High School during your senior year and I was on freshman year. You were an excellent devoted student I remember. The last time I seen you was at Marriot hotel in Santa Clara for Christmas party we enjoyed our pleasant conversation. You had a long life with full of happiness. Now you may rest in peacefully and enjoy your brand new eternity life up in an amazing gorgeous heaven with full of love from all of your generations family, friends, and God.

You were and always will be my beloved. I wish I had it within my power to make everything right for you.

You were one of the sweetest people I've ever known. You will be remembered for a long time for your gentleness and generosity.

May you find much more peace in heaven than you found here on earth.
