    Hope, I am so sorry to read about Donald’s death. I remember him so well when my brother, Grady, was so sick. Donald came by his house almost every day to check on him and spend some time with him. That was really special to Grady. You and your family have my deepest sympathy and will be in my thoughts and prayers.
