Donnie was a great friend. We were on many fabulous golfing adventures together, teaching all over the country, from Seaview in New Jersey to Las Vegas and many points in between. He was a true friend and a great person. We taught golf together and he was on eof the most knowledgeable instructors I ever met. It was a privilege knowing him and I will miss him greatly. Chris White, January 2, 2009 Don, I'm so glad you were in my life. You made me laugh the first day I met you, and you could always make me laugh no matter how down I was. You were the love of my life and my best friend, and I will miss you. Love, Linda Linda L Robinson, December 31, 2008 Don was one of those guys that never said a negative thing about anyone. He always stayed focused on the job at hand and was always a trusted friend. You could spend a lifetime trying to find such a nice person. I will miss him and I send my sincere wishes to his family.
