Carolyn and family,
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Donnie was respected and loved by so many. I pray God will send a host of angels to surround and comfort you all during this time.

Dear Family,
So sorry to hear about Donnie's passing. We worked together at Vocational Rehabilitation and I remember him with pleasant memories. He was very dependable and had a big heart. I remember one particular fun time where several of his VR friends rode dirt bikes through the woods near his home. I know the extended family will miss him greatly and my prayers will be with the family.
