    Dear Hope,
    Not Donnie. Can’t be. I always felt he’d always be here. That no matter what, I could contact him if I needed to. Never knew when we would run into each other. He and I had some good times and laughs together. He will be missed.
    To you and your family my deepest sympathies. May God bring you through this loss and may Donnie R.I.P.

    Dear Hope & Family

    My deepest sympathies on the passing of Don. He and I spent many an evening together on Baccarat. He was a gentle man; kind and considerate, and willing to help anyone in need.

    Our world is poorer for his passing.

    I hope that his memory will always be both a blessing and a comfort to you and yours.
