    Donnie was the first person I met when I moved to Fort Myers (Beau Rivage). I’ve never had such a warm welcome. We were fast friends and had so much fun together. He was loved by all and there is no one on this planet that could make me laugh as hard as he could. He was like family to me and I am devastated to hear of his passing. We have so many fun memories that will be forever cherished from parasailing in Fort Myers to chasing waterfalls in the Dominican Republic. He loved his family fiercely and I am praying for you all as I know this is such a terrible loss for your family. His wit, infectious laugh and caring heart will never be forgotten and forever missed. Hang it on the wall!!! (inside joke) Thank you for the beautiful memories, Donnie!
