This is a beautiful mother’s tribute to her son, Donnie, who served on The CSR Board. Please continue to pray for Donnie's wife, Tiffany, Don, and Madeline, and for Donnie's sister, Sandie, and her husband, Kevin.

Donald and I have 2 absolutely wonderful, exceptional children, Donnie and Sandie, and through them we have very special and loving children in law, Tiffany and Kevin. We are so grateful to You, Lord. They all love You, Lord. We love them all so very much!!! Our precious daughter lives in Texas. Our son lives in Heaven.
On this first Mother’s Day after Donnie has moved to be with You, Lord, I pray this.
(My paraphrase of Psalm 139: 13-16).
For You, Lord,
created Donnie’s inmost being; You knit him together in my womb. I PRAISE YOU because
he was fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. His frame was not hidden from You when he was made in the secret place, when he was woven together
in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw his unformed body; all the days ordained for him
were written in YOUR book before one of them came to be.
John Donne, seventeenth century English poet and preacher wrote this:
……When one (believing) man dies, one chapter
is not torn out of the book, but is translated into
