Home Going of Donald Donnie Lincoln

Dear family and friends,

Donald "Donnie" Lincoln was always the life of the party. He was one of the kindest people in the world and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Donnie had a big heart! To know him was to love him. These past several weeks have been very difficult for our family.

I am writing to you today to let you know about my father's condition.  On September 28th, Donnie unexpectedly suffered a blood clot in his brain that caused him to have a massive stroke. While walking to get lunch, he suffered a stroke in front of the Subway restaurant he was entering.  An ambulance rushed him to the hospital, where he was instantly taken to ICU. They sent him into surgery, where he fought for his life.   Despite the great efforts of the hospital staff, his condition has worsened. Doctors informed us that my father would never recover.  His brain functions have diminished but he continues to fight for his life.  Doctors have said that he will not survive.  After a three-week battle, he has been declared brain dead. He leaves behind his beloved mother, his loving son, and his caring brother. The unexpected condition of my father,  Donnie has been very hard. 

We are comforted by the fact that we have so many great memories, fun times, and laughter with him.

The untimely hospitalization and incapacitation of my dad has caused great pain and sorrow in our family. We are absolutely devastated.  As you can imagine his unexpected injuries suffered from his massive stroke have left us unprepared to cover his homegoing ceremony.  We ask that all who can please donate to help with the homegoing celebration of a phenomenal father, dutiful son, beloved brother, amazing uncle, caring cousin, and  fantastic friend.

We are so very grateful for every donation during this difficult time.

Thank you so much!51615412_1602296944655643_r.jpeg
