I am Ronnie Hogue. I grew up with Donald Ray in Newellton. We lived only about 100 yards from each other. I knew and was good friends with Charlie, Larry and Bobby. I have good memories of his parents Mr. and Mrs. Black. I worked with Bobby and Larry for a few years at Parks Lumber Co. Bobby began my training as a saw filer at the Parks mill. We all grew up in what was known as sawmill curve outside of Newellton on highway 4. I am sorry to hear about Donald's passing. May God bless his family. Sincerely

Carmen Powell and Jason Young
