It was very sad news to hear that Uncle Donnie had passed away but I am left with so many great memories of him and the farm. As one of the Corey girls, we spent all of our free time on the farm when we were young and every day on the farm is a memory of Uncle Donnie. He will never be forgotten and will stay in my heart forever.

The celebration at Philip and Lisa's last summer is my last memory with Uncle Donnie and it is a great one! RIP Uncle Donnie.

Condolences to Aunt Phyllis, Donna, Pam, Philip, Barb, Reuben and Ervin and all of their families.
