    The best father anyone could ever ask for. I am so thankful for how he and my mom raised us to know Jesus. A loving husband and devoted father who had a great sense of humor. I will miss his teasing, his laughter, his. Singing and playing his guitar. Heaven has gained a great addition to their choir and I take comfort in knowing I will see him again. Love you always dad, Lisa

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. We pray God’s peace and comfort knowing it will be but a short time until we will see Donnie again. Each time a loved one passes we have more in Heaven now than we did before. I thank the Lord for knowing Donnie and the many things myself and my children learned from him.
