I was so saddened to hear about the passing of cousin Donnie. He was such a kind person and did so much for my late mom (his cousin Judy). We will always be grateful to him for that. I’m comforted that they will be laid to rest next to one another in our Downs family lot. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. We will miss him.
