I am absolutely crushed at the loss of Terry. I have lived across the park from him my entire life and I took care of him at the wellness center last March. He was the sweetest soul you would ever encounter. He always made an effort to yell my name and wave at me or wave my car down to say hello. I was pregnant when I took care of him and he gave me a big kiss on the cheek the week before I delievered and I’ll never forget it. When we came home with our son he walked across the park to greet us. He gave my son a blanket that means the world to me. I will miss looking over and seeing him wave at me. Thoughts to the Donahie family as for now we all have a special guardian angel. ❤️❤️

To all of Mr. Donahie’s girls, in-laws, and grand babies—may God hold you in the palm of His loving hand until you meet your dad, father-in-law, or grandpa again. R.I.P. Mr. Donahie, I will always remember your smile and kindness. You now have front row seats for every Maroon Knight match-up! Merry Christmas.❤️, Amy
