I wanted very much to be able to attend the funeral, but sadly my husband and myself cannot. Our kids also will not be able to get away . Being the baby of the family, my memories of growing up with Donny, are limited. I did photo bombed myself into his graduation pics our mother took outside on the old farm. I remember being carried on his shoulders at 4-H fairs. He drove the old Dodge pickup way too fast. I sneaked on to back running board and had to hold on for my dear little life as he flew down dirt road back to barnyard. A big white rooster, with sharp spurs, was running after me. Donny grabbed aboard off the ground and knocked it's head clean off in one blow. Big brother hero!
