A little insight to our neighbor James Donaldson is said in the dedication of his son’s book “Standing Above the Crowd”. From a Son to his Father: “He is the man who has been a consistent positive influence throughout my life, and the one who dedicated his life to being the provider, protector, positive influence, and constant presence in the lives of all our family despite the challenges, pressures, and demands that were placed upon him during his own journey through this thing we call “life”.
