Dear Juanita, We were so sorry to get the news about Uncle Donald. We will always remember the great Thanksgiving visits and the walks in Pocantico with Rio. We will always cherish Uncle Donald’s cooking advice “When its brown its cooking and when its black its done.” Love, Pat & Charlie

Juanita and family, of my memories of home Mr. Major is always in them. He introduced me to Professional Wrestling and took me many times to the Norfolk Auditorium to watch our favorite wrestlers. His cheerful attitude was always welcome in our home when I was getting into or out of trouble. And yes, I always thought I would be driving that beautiful Kaiser that he teased me with for so many years sitting in the front yard. I’m so sorry for your loss but take solace in that fact that your gentleman had a long and interesting life and touched the lives of many.
