Donny I just can't say good bye. I just can't. I wish it didn't have to be this way. It was God's will but it's hard to accept. 50 years of being my baby brother, always caring, always feeling your love. I miss your voice, your jokes, laughing with you and you saying love ya sister at the end of every phone conversation. Our family will never be the same without you. You were loved so much. Thank you for being the big hearted brother you were to not just me but to countless others. Fly high my heavenly brother. You don't have to worry anymore. You have peace. Always and forever your big sister Deb.

I knew Donny from his late teens and man did he overcome a lot. He had a big heart !! I enjoyed planning a very successful fundraiser with him not long ago and he earned even more respect from me and many more. Much of your family is my family and I hope you all take solace in the fact that he is riding free now. Love and respect
