Donald, I remember you as my son Terry's good friend back in elementary school. When Terry became district champion in at Brandenburg, you wanted to be his manager. Then when your wife was pregnant with your daugher you said a very profound thing that has stuck with me since. You said very seriously "You know, babies are forever" and the thing of it was, you meant it.

You and Terry were such good friends and you will be sorely missed by all.
