I love you my sweet Donnie. Like Roger you’re alive in my heart. I’m so glad that I was privileged to have you in my life for 18 years. You were always such a kind, gentle man who always put others before yourself. “Go rest high on that mountain! Son your life on earth is done. Go to heaven ashouting love for the Father and the Son.!” Always in my heart.

Dear Earlene and Family,

Shelly and I are heartbroken for you. We know Donnie is doing fine right now, but that does little to soften the feeling of pain and loss everyone is experiencing during this time.

Donnie was beyond a good man. There’s nothing in the dictionary that even comes close to describing how special he was. I am so thankful we were able to message each other while he was in the hospital.

Please know that we have been, and will continue, to pray for you all.
