Donnie was a wonderful man. I went to high school with him and we were good friends throughout college. Donnie was a thoughtful and caring person. I am so sorry for your loss. And saddened to know he battled cancer for 19 years. But it doesn’t surprise me that he didn’t give up. Our thoughts and prayers are with you
