Ray and Mary, Dori and Carl and families; I am sending prayers for peace and comfort in this time of sadness. It is never easy to say good bye to those that leave before us. As time passes, people grow apart and life moves forward. All of you were like my second family many years ago and I have never forgotten. I have many fond memories of those years I shared with you. R.I.P. Donnie.
God's Blessings on all of you.
