I grew up 3 doors down from the Baileys in Forest Park and Donny was one of my best friends. Any time I spent the night at there home camping out in the back yard or on the couch, the next morning Mrs. Bailey would cook us a good home cooked breakfast , She was a lot like a second Mom. May the good Lord rest Her soul.
