So many wonderful memories of Donnie. I share those fantastic grandchildren with him and Tinnie. I know how much they love their Pops. That love will never end. Because he first loved them. God's blessings to Tinnie and all the family. Love from Nana.

I met Don at the Cardiac Rehab Center / Annie Penn Hospital after suffering a heart attack and bypass surgery. I am still in the "maintenance" program there where Don was a volunteer. His gentle, calm demeanor and cheerful attitude has contributed to the success of many of us in the rehab program. I was shocked and saddened when I returned to my rehab class today and learned of Don's passing. My sincere sympathy to your family, as prayers are being lifted up for comfort and peace in the days ahead. (Brenda Ward)

Stephen and I are so very stunned and sad to hear of Donnies passing. He was a servant of God and of others, and his presence will be missed in so many ways by so many people. We send the entire family our love and support, and we hold you all in our prayers. We wish we could be there in person. Kathy Brande and Stephen Durham
