He was a loyal fan at the theater performances and athletic events of his nephews in New Hampshire.
Donald was truly an angel on earth. He was a gentle and loving family member and friend and he brought smiles and compliments to everyone he met. He saw the beauty in everyone and he didn't hesitate to tell them so.
