  • My prayers go out to the family. Becky and Donnie 41 yrs of marriage what a blessing. He always made me smile. He was very funny without even trying to be just a down to earth good man. My boys were lucky to call you their uncle. Wish you guys could have spent more time together but I know they loved you and had a lot of respect for you. Your smiling face will forever be in my memory. May you rest in peace until we meet again. God bless you and the family. Gone to soon.

  • Sending our thoughts and prayers for comfort during this difficult time. May God bless and keep you in His care.
