  • I've known Donny boy all my life, as a little girl. He would tease me. He recently came to my vow-renewal wedding last month, a kiss from the bride, on his cheek and then his little giggle. God bless your soul and smile down on us from your new home in Heaven.💟 - Posted by: Debra Moar (Lamirande) (Family friend) on: Dec 28, 2017
