Donny has a special place in my heart from the moment I met Traci and we were friends. Through all of Traci and I adventures he and Sandra always welcomed me into there home with hospitality and friendliness. I have always admired his love, care and concern for his family always impressed within me the authentic genuine strong man that he is. My thoughts and prayers are continually with Sandra and Traci. I will do my best to always be the friend Traci can rely on, share the good times and the hurtful times with, to support and encourage and best of all love no matter what! Rest in Peace..Much Love and always with prayer.
