The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of JD Donovan


Funeral Expenses.

Unfortunately, I find myself in a situation where I need to reach out and ask for help. I feel awful for having to ask and I really wish it didn't come to this, but sadly, my wife passed away and didn't have all her affairs in order. Monies that were supposed to be left to me as her surviving spouse are instead being claimed by an ex. I'd like to thank you all for your support during these trying times.

    During the summer, Jenny and I would spend every day at Laguna Beach. We'd get there about 9:00 am when the June gloom was still around; stake our claim on the beach by the volleyball courts with our towels, chairs, boogie board, fins, smash ball; and...  more

    Jenny would tell you that I taught her to snow ski up in the beautiful mountains of Big Bear California, where we would spend winter weekends at our family's "haunted" log cabin. In reality, Jenny taught herself to ski. My teaching methods...  more
