My deepest and most sincere sympathies to the family for this terrible loss. I'm so sorry. You know, once Donnie told me that he was a rich man. I said, "How so Donnie?" He proceeded to tell me that he felt that way because he had family that loved and helped him when he needed it, good friends to talk to and have fun with, a good job that provided for him and gave him the means to have just enough to be able to do what he wanted, when he wanted and with whom he wanted which was mainly family and friends. Gonna miss you Donnie. Godspeed my friend.

Donnie and I along with my twin brother Johnny along with our nephew Clint, love playing the PS4 online gaming. We would play on weekends staying up late into the night forgetting the time passing. We even had our brother-n-law Wayne play with us on various games. We had so much fun chatting with each other as we played our characters in the game and sharing our funny's and laughs as we tried to be real serious in character. I miss you BIG BROTHER from your baby brother ronnie.
