Gregory Wright says:

You were an awesome dad. Thanks for stepping up when you did not have to. You touched a lot of lives and will be dearly missed here. Until we meet again, fly high. I Love you.

Carrie Buchanan says:

Donnie was a gentle soul that will be missed dearly. I watched him help so many children and families in terrible circumstances over the years, and he truly made a difference in so many lives. He was kind to everyone and you always walked away from him smiling. I spent many late nights transporting and sitting at the office with children, and through our conversations, it was obvious how much he loved Jackie and his family. People like Donnie make the world a better place, and I want to thank his family for sharing Donnie with us. Many thoughts and prayers are with you all.
