    I had the pleasure meeting Donald when he was working for Oxford PD..You couldn’t have met a sweeter person. After he retired I ran into him a couple times. I know that the family have some beautiful memories that they shared with him. Sending my sincere condolences to the Faircloth family Earth had no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
