There are no words to suffice. I am so very sorry. Please comfort each other and remember so many people loved Donald and love your family.
I am stunned and saddened to learn of Donald's passing. I would like to extend my most heartfelt condolences to your entire family.
At birthday parties, sleepovers, and football games in the yard, Donald was a fixture at the Fox house. Though Donald and I lost touch over the years, I will always look back fondly at the time we spent as great friends. I am most sincerely sorry for your loss.
Love to the entire DeVane family Don, Irene and Courtney.
Much love, Renee

I am shocked and saddened to learn of Donald's death. I just lost my 45 year old brother 3 weeks ago and my parents have told me about the unbearable pain that comes with having one of your children die. I can't even imagine the pain you must be feeling now. Please know that I am sharing your pain and that I am truly sorry for his passing. If there is anything that I can ever do for you.....
All my best to you and Courtney
Wih all of our love,
