Donnie played organ and piano for us at his home in FL. I could have listened to him for hours. He also graciously played for the community as a special favor to me. He always played with such joy. I am priviledged to have experienced his incredible gift. I will always remember Don smiling and sitting at the keys. Rest in peace my friend.
