I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Donald that long. He didn't come into our lives til Serena was almost 4 months old. But it didn't take long before I thought of him as another of Marty and my kids. So kind and sweet, you knew he was raised right!! Would help anyone in need. I enjoyed laughing and joking last year going to all the truck pulls together, he was an awesome scale guy! I will always be thankful for the little girl he brought into our lives. His little gomer. Was always trying to take a piece of her candy, always got cought at it to! He text me the 20th to wish me a happy birthday, I will never delete that text. Donald, I know you are up there looking down and being a guradian angel to all.

Donald was such a good kid, he would do anything for you that you asked of him. I have so many memories of Don Don (that is what his aunt Jo would call him) when he would be camping with uncle Johnny and aunt JoJo (that is what Donald called his aunt and uncle), I can still hear him calling them that! He will definitely be missed by so many people, one of the best, polite people I know.
From one broken hearted mother to another: Bobby, you will forever hold a special place in my heart for no parent should ever have to bury their child, if you ever need to talk I am here. He always talked about his Ma with such admiration and with very high respect. You raised a good kid and you should be very proud of that! He will forever be your guardian angel.
