My husband, Stan Harris, is the eldest of 6 children. Peggy had him then a year later she had Kenny, a year later she had Kathi. Two yrs later she had twin boys - Ronnie and Donnie. So she and Billy had 5 children from 5 yrs old down. Angie came 8 yrs later. I married Stan and my sister, Elaine Harris, married Ronnie. Ronnie , Donnie, Kenny's wife Anna, and I are all the same age and were in high school together. Donnie had been suffering from COPD and cancer. On Wednesday morning, May 27th, he wasn't answering his phone so Kenny went to check on him and found him dead. He'd probably died about 4am. He will be missed.
