Just wanted to let Donnie&s family know that I was sorry to hear of his passing. I haven&t seen him in years but was shocked to see the obit.

My thoughts are with your family at this very difficult time.

In school, he was rather quiet but always had a mischievious smile on his face and was always looked like he knew something that the rest of us didn&t know and that the joke was on us.

Hopefully he went quickly and with little pain.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Donald, but have known Bob for several years through our work at Raytheon. Losing a loved one is not easy and I won&t say I know how you feel because I do not know. My hope is in the resurrection and promise of eternal that Jesus Christ gives us. Your sense of loss will only diminish with the passage of time, as I have learned through the loss of my own father and fellow soldiers through the years.

My prayer is the the Lord will grant you the strength to bear this burden, to bend but not break, and to hold tightly to the hope that rests in His strength alone. Peter told us to """"...cast all our cares upon Him for He cares for us..."""" My personal experience has proven this promise to be trustworthy and powerful.

May God bless and keep you all in His loving kindness, show you mercy each day, and grant you peace beyond all understanding.

Respectfully,

Dr. Dan Surber, PhD.

i can&t remember who introduced us in high school, i know it just seemed like it had been forever. all the years that we spent together just came easily for both of us. donnie made it that way ! he was a doer. he was always looking to experience things, not to just stand by and watch others. i have many memories with donnie that i will carry forever. i will always cherish the time i was lucky enough to spend in a close friendship with such a compasionate soul. we were all lucky who were able to be in donnie&s life, and have him in ours jenni; you were luckiest of all !! i&ll never forget our times together.
love, russ

Jenni & Family...

We&re so sorry to read of Don&s passing..specially at such a """"young"""" age..

It&s been a few years since we&ve seen any of you..but we often think of memories from South 29th Street..

Our thoughts & prayers are with you...



Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!


Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the song that will never end.
I am the love of family and friend.
I am the child who has come to rest
In the arms of the Father who knows him best.

When you see the sunset fair,
I am the scented evening air.
I am the joy of a task well done.
I am the glow of the setting sun.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

I am so sorry to read of your brother&s passing. While we trust in Christ to care for us as we leave this world, the loss of family and friends is no less painful in this life.

As a fellow St. James alum, having been in Bob&s class for several years, and having had at least one class party at your house, I feel a connection to your family. The years have separated us geographically, but as brothers and sisters in Christ, we are still one family under God.

May He bless each of you with His love and presence!

My sister Grace Gillespie, informed me of Donnie&s death. Donnie was in my class at St. James. It saddens me to hear of his death so young. I have fond memories of Donnie and wish you my condolences. God be with you during this difficult time.
