I rode on the same school bus with Donald and Shirley when we went to Charles Carroll Elementary School. He was always funny and a nice guy. I am sorry for your loss and I hope that you find comfort in knowing that he is in no pain. God bless you and your family. I am a friend of Jay and Gloria Sentz.

Our sympathy to the family. Mrs. leese you have had some trying times. Donald and I used to be pals during school. I would ride my bike out to the leese's. We would watch TV or ride our bikes. We took our BB guns along and pretended we we big game hunters. I will miss you Donald.
