Donny has been a part of my life since we moved to Chapel Hill 28 years ago. He always greeted me with a smile and a hug. He frequently warmed my heart by expressing his love and respect for my Husband Don (Marine Corps) and my Father Clois Brooks
(a WWII Navy Veteran) and their service in the military. I will miss Donny’s sweetness and our discussions.
Love always,
