Donald wasn't just my our friend, our neighbor or our pastor. He was our family. He has shown us friendship and love throughout the years far beyond what we ever deserved. He took in Emma as his own and she is the person she is today because of him and we will be forever grateful to have had him in our lives. We will never forget him and have wonderful memories to get us through until we see him again. We love you, Papaw <3
