I grew up in the same neighborhood in Salem, Massachusetts as Donny. He was about 4 years older than I and he was the beloved only child of Chet and Pauline, friends of my parents. The best memory I have of Donny is one rainy day he put on a magic show for all the younger kids in the neighborhood. I have often thought of him ,his wife and his young daughter over the years.
