Funeral for Donald Young, TUCC Sanctuary Choir Director

Because of all of the negativity surrounding Trinity UCC, Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright, I have decided not to allow any more comments. I am truly disappointed at some of the comments I have had to reject - this posting is about the loss of a life, NOT Jeremiah Wright or Barack Obama. I am sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you.

May you rest in peace Donald.
End Transmission.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Tim, and with Donald and Nates families and the Trinity family.

At my church today (University UCC) we said a prayer for Donald and for the fears in general that GLBT people deal with.

I don't know you, nor you me, but I wanted to thank you so much for your blog. Thanks to you I was able to attend Deacon Young's funeral service. We were out of when the news broke and didn't hear of it until our return on the 27th. My husband and I have been going to TUCC for years and joined in April. Both of us really liked Donald's spirit eventhough we didn't know him personally. Over the last several days we learned so much about him and the type of person he was. It really hurts my heart that his life was taken so senselessly. My prayers are with you, your friends and community, and the Young family. May God be with you all.

I hope it's OK if I continue to check out your blog from time to time. I enjoy reading it. Daphne

Tim could you please post Donald's complete obituary, as I was unable to attend the funeral. Thanks.

Out of respect for the family I'd rather not post the entire obituary online. However, if you like I can scan and email it to you provided you not post it online. If you give an e-mail address I can do that. Thanks.
