Jim, Jean & Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys. Today we told the story of your Dad as your assistant little league coach where he realized he couldn't coach in this era, when he shouted to the base runner to take the catcher out on a play at the plate. That generation is leaving us and your dad was a great guy. He will be truly missed.

The Donato's
