  • Though it's been a very long time since I last saw Donald, I remember him as a happy, joking, laughing young man that I knew as one of my cousins when we visited my Aunt Ida and Uncle Sam. Though his passing leaves many sad hearts here, I also know that his mom, dad, and many relatives will be welcoming him with open arms and happy smiles on his arrival there. Love and joy to your beautiful soul, Donald. I know you will be missed by many here until we all meet again. Rest in peace and health, my cousin. - Posted by: Patricia Thomson (Hanslip) (cousin) on: Oct 09, 2013
