I remember when I first knew Donald. He was "courting" my very best childhood friend. I remember seeing that 59 Chevrolet going down to her house to pick her up for their date. After they were married I didn't see as much of my friend. In the years to come, we attended church together at Mr. Hebron. Donald had a unique sense of humor. He sat in the pew in front of me. Donald loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know of no one who prayed prayers as beautiful and heartfelt as he did. Donald I've missed your presence at church , but I know now you're in the presence of the Heavenly Father....we miss you here.
