Mrs. Catrabone, Bailey, Tina and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Donnie and I were classmates and also worked together during summers at the old C&S/National Bank. He was such a wonderful person. It has been many years since we have seen each other, but I will always remember his kindness, how funny he was, and his million dollar smile. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Donnie was a man of impeccable character, endless optimism, and boundless energy. He was a class act! Going to miss you buddy.

A great friend, golfing buddy and someone I had the privilege to share time, drink, food and conversation. We had a lot of wonderful times together, on and off the golf course, in the kitchen, on the beach, in the mountains or just around my breakfast table. I will always remember his friendship, generosity, genuineness, and the true feeling of companionship we shared. My friend is no longer with us, but my memories will continue forever - memories of our time together, Donnie's smile, his laughter, the shared observations about most everything and the warm feeling of knowing you have a best friend that you cared for and who cared for you. I'm glad that Donnie came to Statesboro and we became friends - he brightened my life.
