I was so saddened to hear this news. Donnie was always the nicest man always had time to talk no matter what was going on. I remember him and Marie living next to my grandma on Lombard. They always had such a strong sense of family and God. They were such a sweet couple so much in love. God most definitely got a special angel . prayers to the family especially Marie. RIP
