He’s in great spirits and receiving a steady line of company and telephone calls attesting to his popularity. Donnie’s known far and wide for his tremendous fiddle-playing abilities. He's an inductee to the NYS Old-Time Fiddler's Hall of Fame, and he has many championship awards, several tapes and CDs and even a fiddle book to his credit. His loyal, loving wife, Pat, has been right by his side throughout this whole ordeal. It was great to see them both and wish them well before Mary and I part for Tennessee.
Donnie had to cancel his whole summer music schedule due to his health issues. We all look forward to his speedy return to good health and to resuming his playing schedule as soon as it is safe.
