    Donny was a close friend through junior high, high school and several years into adulthood. He was a great guy and I always appreciated his calm steadfast approach to life and his big smile. SO very sorry to hear about his unexpected passing and wish I could attend his services. I still think about him often and will include all of you in my prayers.
