I am sitting here in awe. I remember the first time I met your family. Our children played together. You were truly an inspiration to me. It took me a long time to accept that you were gone.I thank God for allowing you and your family to cross my path. May God continue to bless you Jenni, Matt, and Lauren.

I'll sure miss you buddy! I really enjoyed doing business with you for these past 17 years. And of course having pizza over at Brothers.

Dear Jennifer and family, we have known Don since he worked at Video Plus and always lovingly called him,Video Don. He would always comment on my painted tshirts and we would laugh later when he opened his store that my check was in the mail. I have never heard a negative word about him. This community needs more folks just like him. We will miss that sweet smile and big heart. God Bless You. The Keene family

Dear Jenni and Family,
There are no words to express how much my husband and I appreciate Donald and how he has helped our young adults, by teaching them about the graphics business and about "giving back". All this he did out of the goodness of his own heart. He gave of his valuable time
and energy like very few would volunteer to do. It brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it... his goodness and generosity. We love you and thank you Donald! May the Lord give the family strength and peace during this time of transition. Donald's spirit lives on, forevermore. We will never forget him.
With Love,

To echo my sister's comments, our families are so appreciative of your notes, offerings, cards, food, flowers, hugs and extensions of your love. Donald touched so many lives in a positive way. He was like my own son. My wife and daughters adored him. He will be forever in our hearts. May his spirit add joy to God's Heavenly Kingdom. Donald Leonetti will be greatly missed here on this earth.
With love and admiration,
Uncle Damon
