    So sorry for your loss. I worked with Donald at colonial place and he was one of my favorite residents that I have ever taken care of. He had a great sense of humor and could always make you laugh. He was a very outgoing gentleman and I will definitely miss our chats at work

    We offer our deepest & heartfelt sympathy to Joanne & Jane, and Marianna & Esther upon the death of their step-father and brother. We went up to Elkins this past weekend to visit Donnie, and found him to be very, very sick. He was a great cousin and a wonderful & devoted friend, and we will miss him very much.
