    Donald, my work-study buddy, for the youngsters that might not know, work study was when you would get out of school at noon Mon, Wed, Fri and go to your part time job. We'll, as it turned out Donald and I had the same job which entailed walking to Olympic Pizza, getting a sub and walking over to the park and hanging out banging on the drum all day so to speak. You were always fun to hang out with and a calming influence on this intense Irishman. Fly high brother.

    My heart is very heavy with this loss as my closest peeps are hurting in his absence too! Donald was the most simplest, happy go lucky guy I've ever known. He always welcomed me with the biggest smile and a huge bear hug when I saw him. How could you not love this man! You have been like a brother to me and I will miss you dearly. You will be forever in my heart Donald! Love, Lisa
