My deepest sympathies to all of Donny's family. He was a terrific person and one of the funniest guys I had the pleasure to know. One of my memories I like to share is when we were young how Donny taught me and Kelly how to guzzle a beer while standing on our heads at parties. He was always the life of the party and just wanted to be around him. He will still be the life of the party in his new home. Good bye my friend.
