  2. James Hiroms we are sorry for the loss of your father. May our condolences bring you comfort and may our prayers ease the pain of this loss. The UCLA Team is here to support you.

  3. I felt in conversation that Donnie was like a brother to me, sort of was since he was a step-brother. I always loved Donnie and my heart went out to him. He always seemed to be getting a raw deal. But he took everything in stride and was a happy dude. My life is better to have known him. In my youth he would come around to see me and we would visit. He always was quick with a laugh. We are all going to miss him. My life is richer to have known him. I know his step-father (my dad) sure loved him. Donnie, you will always have a place tucked inside my heart. God bless you. I will miss our long telephone conversations. Love you dude.

  4. “We are spirits. That bodies should be lent us, while they can afford us pleasure, assist us in acquiring knowledge, or in doing good to our fellow creatures, is a kind and benevolent Act of God. When they become unfit for these purposes and afford us pain instead of pleasure, instead of an aid become an encumbrance, and answer none of the intentions for which they were given, it is equally kind and benevolent, that a way is provided by which we may get rid of them. Death is that way.
    Today I grieve the loss of my father. Although I could not attend I did go before God and pray that he no longer has to endure pain and that he knows both in life and death that I love him. It brings me comfort to know that he will be reunited with his mother and father and I pray for the day that I too will be reunited with my mother and my father since we soon to follow, And know where to find them.
    Your son …
