Bobby, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

I share my condolences and sorrow with D.P.s (what I called him) loved ones! D.P. was a good friend for over 32 years. He was the most loyal friend ever! It was always uplifting to talk with D.P.! I will miss D.P. greatly, but I know with great surety, he now resides where GOD and Christ/Yeshua/Jesus resides. My spirit is at peace knowing that -- and that he now has his spirit body -- one that never gets sick or ages. Until I see you again on that glorious day, my brother.....

Wow! what wonderful childhood memories Donnie made for me and other kids in the neighborhood back in the day. he made this swing in his dad and moms back yard he named the twister, he would let us kids get on it then spin us around in every direction possible which made us all laugh till we cried, he was so much fun. Donnie was always kind to me and warm hearted. when they moved away from Bloomingdale GA. to Riceboro we were very sad, but his mom&dad would always let me and my sister come for a two week visit in the summer time, he would let me ride on his motorcycle every time i ask which was a lot Donnie had a good Spirit. was Gentle and understanding. i wish i would have been closer to him in the adult years. Donnie made special memories for me, just a few mentioned here, and are priceless. thank you ole friend.
