Rest In Peace Donnie, my condelence to your family. I no Donnie is at peace now with The Lord, he fought here on earth with a lot of things that we have no clue of only him and The Lord knows what they are, I myself question why? n such a early age, but then I believe in Gods word n there he says for I only no the future what lies ahead n I have to believe that God has taken Donnie home where piece is surrounded him and he’s rejoicing with The Lord, Donnie Loved his kids he talked about them all the time a big huge smile would be on his face when he was saying something about them ! Last Sunday when I left to go back home I didn’t no that was gonna be the last day I would see his smiling face again , I hugged him and drove away my daughter n I talked about how sweet it was for him to buy our lunch that day. I’m so thankful that I took the time to have lunch with him and my mother that day cause I was n a hurry to get home before dark, had I known that was gonna be the last time I would see him maybe I would have stayed longer and talked with Donnie more, I guess what I’m trying to say here is take time for people in your life don’t take for granted that they will always be here, leave people with the big huge smile Donnie wore when he was talking to u! Donnie we will see u again my brother in heaven shine on with that Big Smile n Heaven!!!
