  1. We sure liked and enjoyed Mr. Donnie. He was always cheerful and loved to joke with us. We often saw him at his brother Art’s car lot as he payed visits to and helped Art with the cars frequently. One of his favorite greetings was always, “hello there moneybags!” Those were good days! To the family, our condolences.
