It didn’t matter what Boston sports team was making their champion run, Donnie was always watching. Although he loved all Boston sports, his annual trip to watch the Patriots play in Miami was his favorite. Countless vacations all over the globe with family and friends brought much joy to his life. Growing up in the Point of Pines makes the beach a place reminiscent of love, family, friends and coming home.
