I have tried starting this contribution several times over the past 2 weeks but mere words can never express the pain and loss I feel from losing Donnie!! I will always miss the radiant smile that could light up any room, which Donnie shared with everyone who ever crossed his path!! It's such a joy to see that same smile shine from Colton's face! Whenever we are missing Donnie, we can look at Colton and his identical smile will help heal our aching heart's! I must thank Heather for having Colton, because whenever I see him, I will be reminded that a piece of Donnie is still here for all of us to love.

Kay, I am here for you whenever you need me and you know that! I can't even imagine what you are going through right now and pray that I never have to! Your strength not only amazes me, it inspires me! Knowing what you have gone through and are going through now, makes me realize how trivial my problems are and if you can get through this, I can get through anything that life throws my way! I know it is hard to be strong, but Kay, you are a true "Steel Magnolia."

I had the privilege in meeting and working with Donnie. He was a terrific, sweet, respectful and nice guy I’m glad I had the chance to meet him. I will always remember him and remember all the times he made me laugh. I’m really going to miss you! I’m still in disbelief but I know God has a plan for all of us but yours was cut to short. My prayers are with you and your family always and forever. Love always Juliette

Oh how my heart aches! I am at such a loss for words. Nothing can express the pain I feel for the family. Donnie, how you will be missed. I shared such a deep loss with your brother Randy, and now you will be with your brother to watch over those that will be in mourning for you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends and all those that you have touched in your life. Know that I will love you and your brother always and that you will now guide me as your brother has for many years. Thank you for being a part of my heart and soul Donnie. Give my love to your brother and others that I have lost over my years.

It is impossible to find the right words to express our deep sadness at this tragic loss. Your family has experienced more grief than any should ever have to. Donnie was such a wonderful man. As I read the other tributes, I realized that everyone saw the same things in him that we did - an extreme love and closeness with his Mom, a deep love and devotion to his son, and a smile and spirit that lit up any room he was in. I too feel that he will be a guardian angel for both Kay and Colton, as well as to all the others he so loved. Although he will be greatly missed, his love will live on through all of those whose lives he touched. God has received a wonderful addition, and we have lost a dear man. Kay and Pat, know that you are in our prayers - our hearts ache deeply for you, and we love you.

I still remember the first time I met Donnie when he was about 9 yrs. old at Camp Bandina. What a great person! Words cannot express out sympathy to the family of Donnie and his sweet grandmother. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

To Donnie and your whole family.... words will never express our feelings enough that we have for you. We are here for you for anything that you may need! We love you and you are in our prayers each and every day. I got this from someone when I lost my brothers....just always remember the love you have with your children, and you will smile again.

If tomorrow starts without me,

And I'm not there to see,

If the sun should rise and find your eyes,

All filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn't cry,

The way you did today,

While thinking of the many things,

We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,

As much as I love you,

And each time that you think of me,

I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,

Please try to understand,

That an angel came and called my name,

And took me by the hand,

And said my place was ready,

In heaven far above,

And that I'd have to leave behind

All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,

A tear fell from my eye,

For all my life, I'd always thought,

I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,

So much left yet to do,

It seemed almost impossible,

That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,

The good ones and the bad,

I thought of all the love we shared,

And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,

Just even for a while,

I'd say good-bye and kiss you

And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,

That this could never be,

For emptiness and memories,

Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,

I might miss come tomorrow,

I thought of you, and when I did,

My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven's gates,

I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me,

From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,

And all I've promised you.."

Today your life on earth is past,

But here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,

But today will always last,

And since each day's the same way,

There's no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful,

So trusting and so true,

Though there were times you did some things,

You knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven,

And now at last you're free,

So won't you come and take my hand,

And share my life with me?

So when tomorrow starts without me,

Don't think we're far apart,

For every time you think of me,

I'm right here, in your heart.

To the family of Donnie,

I am so sorry to hear of yet another loss in your family. I have known Myrtle for many years through camp and she was so proud of her family. I will pray for God to comfort you in your loss. He is true to His word. May the Lord bless you and know that you will be in my prayers for a long time. Love, Jacque Lange

Donnie Michael - a wonderful young man and a student I remember with a smile. In my conversations with former students I have heard so many wonderful things about Donnie, Heather and their beautiful boy. My heart aches for you in this time of sorrow...my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
