Susan and Chooch, What wonderful people Don and Marti were to us, Kyle and Kelsey and many others. When we arrived at the cabin for a weekend the kids would be anxious to run over and say hello, but Splash would come bounding over to greet them first. One memory of the many that stand out is a summer day Don wanted to take the boat down the river. He asked us to go and of course we did. We floated towards town and motored back. I don't know this for sure but that might have been the last time he took the boat out? I think he wanted one last oppty to cruise the river. The untold number of hours they spent with Kyle and Kelsey can never be forgotten. Crafts, music and lots of poker, monopoly etc. We have some pictures that we will be sending you Susan, we found them when we moved recently. Please call us when things settle down, we would like to catch up.

I was blessed to know Donnie for a short time before his passing. Susan and Howard introduced me through our church. We enjoyed playing music together out of a beautiful book of songs Donnie's wife put together in a hand-tooled leather binder which Donnie loved. We would take a music break and talk about his band in Maryland and go through photo albums of the years past. A beautiful soul was he. Now Donnie is playing and singing for the King from his mansion in heaven. I am blessed by our paths crossing here on earth. VIc

We so much enjoyed getting to know Don and Marti when they moved to McVeytown. Certainly were very good neighbor. What a gifted singer and guitar player Don was and certainly blessed many people by sharing that.

Donnie was my grandfather’s brother and the two of them loved to play their guitars. Music was his passion and I had the pleasure to play my guitar alongside Donnie this past summer, something I’ll always remember and hold dear to my heart. Not only was he a very good guitarist, but he could sing too! He was a lighthearted and fun guy and we had a great time jamming out some of his favorite songs. I know he and my grandfather, his brother Virgil, are together again enjoying a laugh and playing their guitars once again. Donnie will be sorely missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter Susan and all his family. May he Rest In Peace.

Missing my "Dad" and sharing in my sister in Christ, Susan's grief. Rejoicing in Don being called home to Jesus. Hallelujah!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
