I can’t remember a time all through our school years from 7th grade thru our senior year without a thought of Donny. Donny was always fun and always kind.

Am so sorry he and your family had to suffer such a horrific disease. Having members of my family who were disabled by it my brother and sisters send you our prayers.

We were just little boys when we first met, 9 years old. Teddy Golon lived a few houses down from the Olesens. Teddy, Donnie and I became fast friends. We had all just made our respective Little League teams, and that summer became a blur of baseball happenings. If we weren't playing baseball, organized or sandlot, we were riding our bikes to the beach or maybe Carvel if we had an extra quarter. He was the gangly, red-headed kid everyone knew and loved.

Jo-Ann and I send our love to you Arlene, and the entire Olesen family. We will cherish Don's friendship and hold all of you in our prayers.
