Smilin Donnie and the late Robert Gregorio & I adventured to Nashville in 2006 and attended Cowboy Church together with Johnny Cash's sister singing at the pulpit. He was a Big Hit down there too; singing karaoke in the venues at Printers Alley. One of lifes' ambassadors of Christ he truly was. I am quite sure he will have many Stars in his Crown. "Well done dear child of God"

Rest in Peace Donnie! So many memories to being your duet partner to your dance partner on those Karaoke nights. You earned your nickname "smiling" with good reason. Such a kind, caring man! Many thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
