Condolence & Memory Journal


I just became aware of Donny's unfortunate passing. Monica and I send our deepest condolence to you and your family. Donny was a great guy and one of a kind. We worked together for many years and he was the best man at my wedding back in 1994. The times we spent together are not forgotten. We lost touch after we stopped working together and Monica and I moved to Florida. I remember how his mere presence and his sense of humor could bring a smile to just about anyone. He will be missed deeply.

I just wanted to say what an amazing person Donny was. We shared an office for almost two years and those years were some of the most memorable years of my life. Donny's could always make me laugh no matter how stressful the day was. I still find myself today telling other people about the stories Donny shared with me. He was a great friend and I will miss him dearly.

Donny kept his fellow workers in true good humor and maintained the social flow of pleasure's tide. Unfortunately, Donny's passing is not fiction, Pulp or otherwise.

My thoughts and prayers are with all members of Donny's family. May you be surrounded by the love and support of people who were fortunate to know Donny. He was a fighter that I know.

His sense of humor will be missed. Always finding life more interesting than work, he cared about people, and beamed when he spoke about his family. And what a story teller!

Tina and Kylie,
Words cannot express how sorry I am for the loss of your beloved Donny. I must say, with sincerity, that I feel very fortunate to have become friends with Donny over the years. His witty humor, his helpful hand and his optimistic outlook on life will always be something I remember about him ... amongst many things, of course. I hope that in time, the days will become easier for you. Please know that you are both in our thoughts and prayers.

Tina and Kylie,
So very sorry to hear of Donny's passing. Wow, what a warrior he was. He fought long and hard to stay with "his girls". He was a good man and will be missed by many.

I will always remember Donny & his great sense of humor. He was a good board member & was always a fair Man. I knew he fought until he could fight no more & all I can say he had more strength than I could every imagine. Tina & Kylie my sympathy & thoughts go out to both of you as I know this has not been easy for either of you. I ask God to give you both strength as the days pass bye. Keep your memories close at heart & I know you both will have a special Angel watching from above. May Donny be out of pain & have no more suffering. May he R.I.P.
