I played football with Donald in 1954. He was a junior running back and I was a senior linebacker under Coach Mal Morgan. Donald was a really good ball player and all of us thought the world of him. Always had a smile on his face and was a great guy. I wish I had known he was in Lagrange I would have looked him up. Will miss him.
Class of 1954

My condolences on the loss of your Uncle. I’m sure he was a great man who loved his family. I pray that your tears of sadness become tears of joy in remembering his legacy.
“ He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more. Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore; for the former things have passed away.”
