Thank you for signing Donnie Ray Jordan's Guestbook
It is the greatest honor and privilege to call Donnie family. He has been a member of our family for 30 years and he will be missed more than words can relay. We love everything about Donnie; his devotion to his wife and children, his spiritual walk, his sense of humor, his values and that he loved us back. No words can encompass what this man means to us. My deepest prayers for my sister and the kids as they begin this journey without his physical presence; for he will forever be in their hearts and on their daily walk. We are always here for you and the kids and we love you so very much. Danny and Tonette

I remember Donnie from when he worked with Duke Power. He was an energetic young man with a great smile and positive outlook. He was always a pleasure to be around. We all knew he was going places. I am sadden to hear that he passed at such a young age. I am sure that he has impacted the lives of many others and his smile will continue to lighten their memory forever.
