    I guess we can all read that Donnell had it going with that smile of his. He was the most devoted loyal employee you could ever ask for as well as friend and buddy. One of the best single parents I knew til he met the one of the best things that ever happened in his life and that was His wife Kristi. Our prayers go out to his family and if you ever want to be with him again then get to know Jesus because that is the only way we will be together again as he is in Heaven for sure!!!

  20. Linda and Danny Gray

    So many beautiful messages of love for this very special man. This tells you what kind of person Runt was. Everyone who knew him loved and respected him. Our friendships with him were cut short, but our lives were enriched for having known him. Our best to Kristi and boys.
