Donald was a quiet person in school but very nice. He died way to young, but lived life to the fullest. He always seemed to be such a caring person. He is missed today.

I'll never forget how Donald blushed when I asked him to ride our Freshman "Brylcreem" Homecoming float. His long, blonde curly hair made him the perfect person because his hair needed to be tamed with, "a little dab." A couple of months before he got really sick I saw him at the dentist's office and we had a big hug and laugh over it.
