I have a few memories of Uncle Donnal. He came up to Longview with my Dad (Larry Briggs). He took me to the mall and I wanted cowboys jacket really bad of course Uncle Donnal made sure to let me know I was going for the wrong team.😃 But he also helped me get that jacket too. He said " Larry, how often do you get to see her. Get what she wants" So, I got the jacket. I do have some other memories of him. RIP Uncle Donnal.
