My Uncle Donnie was a special Uncle that I respected from the time I was born, I have some fond memories of he and Aunt Myrtie for the past 61 years, It meant alot to me for him to come visit us at our home last year in July in Bardstown Ky. I love you Uncle Donnie and I will miss you. I know that you are happy in heaven and will be an angel watching over. Thank you for your guidance and always making me feel loved.
