"My love, yes you Donald are still so strongly felt in my heart. You seem to never leave my mind and I see parts of you in all our children and grandchildren. You would have been such a wonderful grampa. Those babies would have adored you as much as I still do. Missing you like crazy and wishing I was there, beside you, and watching over our family. Maybe someday soon my love, but until then, you watch over us all. We all love you so very much and all are missing you as much as me. Donald,Jr, is walking I your footprints and I can see you in him a lot. Hard worker and oh so devoted to Phyllis and me as well. Thank you forgiving he and the others to me. They are all great kids. Love you sweetheart. Save me a seat!"

"To the love of my life. Can't believe you've been gone 20 years. It's been so very lonely without you and I miss you terribly. You would love all your grandchildren and especially your great grandchildren. They are all so special. Just save me a seat. Can hardly wait to see you. Love you always."

"This July 11, 2014 was the 19 th year of my loves passing. I still miss him every day and wish I was with him again. Donald left me with memories of love, his love of fishing, children, and grandchildren. There is no one that could ever replace him. My heart remains with him forever."
