Donat also known as mr. Nut was a great man, I was lucky to meet him. He changed the way I looked at life. He truly became my best friend. I would love to sit down and just listen to him and hear all his stories . He was such a amazing friend. The world truly lost a great person . He was a fighter above anything else, that just may be the biggest thing I took out of our friendship . No matter what he was faced with I seen him every day with a smile on his face and a positive attitude all the way til the end. He taught me to never give up no matter what I was faced with and as long as I refused to give up I could get thru it. He was extremely thankful to his wife Sandy . Absolutely devoted her life to mr. Nut and he was so grateful to have her. Night and day she put mr. Nut first ..truly a amazing women. And mr.nut knew it. I am blessed to have shared time on this earth with such a amazing friend. He will forever be missed but never forgotten . I love you mr. Nut. And I can't thank you enough for always being there for me.
