    So many fond memories of Donnie here in Florida, hadn’t saw him in years and was our back door neighbor here. Boat rides, out to dinner, shopping trips, and cooking us some wonderful meals. Will miss our talks at Christmas time catch-up. Thanks for the great times and all you did for us. Loved you Don. God Bless your Family. Sending our sincere condolences.
