Don told me the story of when I was little (3 o 4yrs old) about me feeding all my dinner to Flash, their Irish Setter), so I could hurry and get my dessert. I wouldn't have done anything like that! (Innocent face) lol

Donnie was a wonderful man. My only regret is I didn't get to spend more time with him. I know he is at peace and I am praying Mary & the rest of our family can get strength from each other!
