From: Chester A. Cosby Jan 6 2020 3:22PM Our prayers are with you for your loss, we are unable to attend the services due to health issues but know you are in our prayers. Donnie was my favorite cousin growing up and we spent many a summer driving up and around the town square on a Saturday evening. He also took the time to teach me how to drive a stick shift vehicle when I was 14 years old and I can remember how we would go back and forth over him be in the Navy and myself in the Marines. He will be missed. I was hoping to get a cousin reunion going for this year and holding it in or near Lewistown so all could attend. I will miss him and sorry I won't be their for the service. From: Seanelle McDonnell Feb 27 2020 11:55PM I'm so sorry, he was a sweet man and a kind soul. I am sorry I didn't see this happened sooner and personally send you guys prayers for healing and strength in this tough time.
