I'm so sorry for your loss! My condolences to Donald's family: Kathy & family and to his brothers and sisters. I remember Donald when he was a teenager and always riding his horse "Flash", who would do whatever Donald commanded. He was a great horseman. He would visit us often in Garcia, as we were their closest neighbors. May he Rest in Peace! Marie & family
