Words can not describe how I felt to be a part of Donnie’s life. I was close to him, he made me feel wanted and loved as if I was one of his own grandchildren. Donnie is family, he taught me many things and shared lots of wisdom with me! I enjoyed the many years I would have sleepovers with Grandma JJ and Papa Donnie when I was younger. I especially loved the animals, cats, dogs, deer, birds, horses; he made sure to feed all the animals! Donnie was kind-hearted! Donnie is in heaven with everyone I will see soon!
So sorry to hear of Donnie’s passing! Worked with him for many years, he was the same for all of them, good guy, do anything for you, one of a kind!!!Donnie will be greatly missed by many! RIP ole BuddyTom
Donnie was a great friend who provided me a place to stay when needed and warm friendship. I had not seen Donnie for a few years but heard he was doing well. I was not from Searcy County but Donnie showed me all the beautiful places and introduced me to the many good people of Searcy County. Donnie added good to the world and deserves a heavenly reward for all the things he has done to help people including me. Rest In Peace Good Friend.
