Donnie, you will be missed so very much! You helped me in more ways than you could have ever even known. Brought me into your circle of friends, who became family, and were always there whenever I needed to talk or needed advice. Texts every morning and Friday night family dinners at Jimmy and Virginia’s. Heaven definitely gained another angel when they got you!!
