DONALD RALPH WRIGHT (DONNIE AIN’T WRIGHT)
A light has gone out on the Southside! Donnie lost his battle with cancer. There will be a lot of things that people will miss about Donnie. On March 7, 2013, he started his highly “Intelligent” weather updates and weather reports to his friends, especially on Facebook. Featuring “It’s gonna snow till it stops. The more snow we get the deeper the accumulation will be! Or the temperature is 30 degrees, but if this was summer it would be a lot hotter!”
He was famous for his jogging around Garfield Park with his dog Miley. He loved to fish and was often saying, “I’m all about that bass, about that bass. No minnows!”
Donnie felt that ashes to ashes, dust to dust, life’s a bitch and beers a must!
Donnie had many friends, too many to mention. He will be missed by all.
In loving memory of NORMAN “Gene” JONES
Happy Birthday, Gene
I think the hardest part of losing someone isn’t having to say goodbye, but rather learning to live without them. Always trying to fill the void, the emptiness that’s left inside your heart when they go.
Miss you everyday,
Love, your Dad
P.S. I think you would be excited that Super Bowl 50 will be played on your birthday.

Greatly missed by children, Taylor, Jessica and Sarah, mother, Wilma, wife, Wanda, brothers, sisters, aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, stepparents and friends.
