I spent lots of time with Donnie in our younger years. We were in Boy Scouts together. The Bell and Methvin families were more than just friends.But life,time and age has a way of making us lose contact. I will cherish the memories I have of Donnie,Douglas and their mom Frankie,who holds a specal place in my heart.Y'all are in my prayers. Love and God Bless.
