My deepest sympathy to Heidi, Donna and your families. There are no words to take away the heartache losing my best friend of 35+years when Maryanne passed. Another heartache today learning of the passing of Donnie. I cherish the memories of our wonderful longtime friendship. So many fun times together; Donnie always the jokester, laughing until it hurt your belly. Times I’ll never forget. RIP my friend and give Maryanne my love.
