I met Tina and her family when I was 11 years old. And every since the first time I met Donnie I knew he was a no nonesense kinda guy, but as I grew older I seen he was a big teddy bear he was sweet as can be and me and Tina Boyd are still best friends and now my sister in law and I always ask how was her daddy doing? He was a solider thru life and god not only got a angel he got a solider. Love you Donnie Henshaw💙😇
