I was very young living at my grandmothers and grandfathers, and I’ll always remember donald used to come to their house, jumping over the fence and playing catch with me, even tho I was 8 years younger. He never seemed to mind. then abruptly he was gone to the army. He came from a very poor and large family, but their position in life never seemed to matter. He and his whole family, mother artie, sister Lou, and all the rest seemed to be happy, content with who they were. I still go by his resting place in reed cemetery, where I have many relatives myself, and wonder what could have been.
