I have great memories of Don when we were kids. We spent good times at Christmas time at our grandparent's home. The holidays were always hectic and filled with noisy kids running around. While we did lose touch over the years I will always have good memories of the times we shared as children.
Donny, RIP and I hope you're soon reunited with your mom and dad. My mom says nothing made your mom more proud than having you as her child!
Thinking of you, Cousin Joe DeMuro
