"Uncle Don" will be missed for his better nature, his skill in managing horses boarded there and from memories of ACCOMMODATING so many children, who visited and benefitted from their healing capacity. His generosity of spirit and Catholic devotion, as well as his forthrightness about the history of Catholicism with its military roots for defending were reliable. He walked miles, daily, I was reminded by his mother and our Grandmother Marie, for the U.S. Postal Service. He was not always respected for his willingness to extend service and hospitality, due to fear of such. A void has been obvious in his adult children for years , and in their grief I hope they can come close to meeting his integrity and his steadfast faith.

I was sorry to learn of the passing of Uncle Donnie so soon after the death of Aunt Vergie. I continue to pray for them both and for my cousins and their families. I know how much Vergie and Donnie treasured their marriage and their love for each other. I take solace in that they are now united again in the life of the world to come. Donnie was a wonderful uncle to me, both when the family owned the McGee Farm and thereafter, I loved our conversations, though he usually did most of the talking! I loved that part about him too,
