There are too many wonderful memories to really narrow it down to one. The meals and trips we have shared through out the 38 years we’ve been friends have been some of our most treasured memories. Donnie’s famous Mexican cornbread which we always enjoyed immensely. The beautiful wood things he made and gave us are always conversation pieces when we have people visit . They will always be on display in our home as constant memories of our dear sweet giving friend. Mainly I am blessed to say that it was my matchmaking that got you and Donnie together. Thank you very much! We will always be here for you Joyce, just a phone call away.
Love You Forever Friend
Kay and Larry
