My Uncle Donnie was the most loving and caring person. I never saw him get angry, he always had a smile on his face. He loved everyone unconditionally. Him and his wife sent me a congrats card when my daughter was born and I will cherish the card forever. Love you Uncle Donnie. Shannon (Mann) Harris and the Harris family
