Donald, Ronald, Rita and I were close in age. We were country neighbors and would travel the half mile or so to each other's homes, on foot or by bicycle, to play as children. I have many fond memories of those years and such good friends. My thoughts and prayers are with Donald's family in this time of loss. May God comfort and strengthen you.

I am thinking about all of you today. I was so sorry to read about Donald's untimely death. I went all the way through school up to graduation with the "McGinty Twins". They were always gentlemen. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. You are in my prayers.

Don was like a Big Brother to me - and a true Friend. He loved my mom and dad so much. He enjoyed time with my sisters and brother for many years. Kathy is also a special friend and "part of the family" as she has been in our lives a long time as well. We dearly and deeply LOVE Don and Kathy!
