I known Donnie since I was 10 or 11 years of age. He was always kind to me. Im sure he has peace now being in heaven with Jesus and his parents. I know Donnie and Yvettes kids my nieces and nephews have turned out to be awesome God loving adults. I have no doubt their grandchildren will do the same. Praying for our family. Love you Donnie fly high
