I remember Donnie as a little boy. One memory I will always remember is going to their door having Donnie run up to me naked as can be, he was probably 2 or so clinging to his diaper with his sister Alma hot on his trail, I opened the screen door and he just took off up the street. Alma was so mad at me for letting him escape. He was happy as a clam running around with Alma and I both chasing him.
He grew into a wonderful person and i’m Sure will be greatly missed. Until we meet again, Rest In Peace Donnie.
