      Donny will be missed by many. He was my BEST FRIEND, he had so much to offer the world. If anyone knew him like I did, they would have known what a kind & sweet hearted man he was. He certainly did not deserve this. No body should be taken from there mother who LOVED HIM the way his mother did, Donny was all she had, and his father has to bury his only son, none the less his 3 year old daughter and one on the way have to grow up without knowing who there daddy was. What a shame. May you RIP Donny I know your last breathe on earth was surely your first in Heaven! Happy Easter my brother. Love MC & Rocco

    Donny was a dad, son, grand son, brother, uncle, cousin and a friend to many of us!!! ur the true scum ws and god will judge you too asshole.he wasn't perfect but neither are you so when you talk to st, peter at the pearly gates,remind him of your callous uncaring unfeeling soul and then go and feel the lake of fire you wanna be disgrace to true Christians. you obviously will never know Jesus. i can only hope and pray that someday you may truly find god so that your evil tongue can shut the f up.you hypocrites are not welcome in heaven.go read the bible b4 you try to feel better than someone who was murdered in cold blood.maybe if it happened 2 u,u would not be so quick 2 judge.i would feel sorry 4 u but ur not worth it.why don't u do the world a favor and just take a long walk off a short cliff!!!you must truly be the south end of a northbound horse. R.I.P.Donny.I love you. Donnys brother…
