JoAnn, Please know I feel your sorrow in losing a loved one. You have many precious memories of your life with Donnie. I remember his smiling face at the Wildcats football games selling those programs. Since my Charles passed away three years ago I moved to Marietta to be near my daughter. So please know I am thinking of you. Jean
