    You will be missed Uncle Donnie. I vividly remember me and all the cousins chasing you around to try and get your blue comb from your back pocket at all the holidays and birthday parties. You brought so much joy to gatherings and all of us. Rest easy in the arms of the Lord.

    You were my father’s best friend. The one the day he died to be there for me. To know what you lost as well as I that day, to have eachother to lean on that ride home from the hospital. We barely spoke that ride but didn’t have to. A memory I’ll never forget. I know my pop appreciated it too. Pop,Al,and Frank Fank have been patiently waiting to throw a line in the water with you. Thank you for all you did for me and all the others you had an impact on. Always being the fun uncle being picked on by myself and all my cousins, you never let us down with a good time.

    Rest in peace cousin. Times I remembered most is family picnics at Aunt Pat’s farm. Love to your family at this time, as it is hard to loose a son and a sibling.
