“Donnie, My friend, where do I start? As children we ran and laughed, we cried, we fell, we got up we marched on into adulthood never forgetting the friends we played with and you my friend were a friend I had and kept from childhood. Some grow up and grow apart, we did not. Our friendship grew stronger the older we became. All the smiles, the jokes and the laughter remain in memories. You are asleep my friend and through Jehovah’s promise of everlasting life I know we’ll see each other again very soon. A little goodbye for now….I love you Donnie, my forever friend…..”

“I have many found memories growing up in Teralta Cir.. Donnie or now Don is one of them. We grew apart as we got older. But that doesn’t change anything from our early years. Don was a great freind and in my opinion he still is. My heart goes out to the entire Scheidt family. Donnie was one of my very first freinds. And will be missed. I’m sure Coach Campbell got it right. Billy”

“Dear Donnie, I haven’t seen you in a couple of decades, since I moved to San Diego in 1987. But I thought of you from time to time, hoping you were well. I remember you, mostly at West High and just hanging out. You seemed to have a way of getting into … disagreements, never one to back down. I will remember you always, those eyes, your shy smile and us passing silly notes (and answers) in class. To Donnie’s family and friends, (I’m sure I know some of you from the west side), I understand your grief. I pray God sends each of you His Grace and many Blessings and that He holds your hearts in His hands. Although you can no longer see Donnie, his love Is forever with you. Keep talking to him. With my sincere and deepest sympathy, Karen Waldvogel-Yong”

“There are so many great memories living on Teralta. Don (Back then it was Donny and mine was Billy) was a huge part of that. Even though we all grew apart my thoughts would go back to that time when we were all growing up together. Playing ball and hanging out together is some of my fondest memories. My heart goes out to the entire Scheidt family. You’ll be missed Don Your friend forever, Bill”

“May you become his quarterback and lead his team to Greater glory.. Rest in peace.”

“Donnie, may you be at peace my old friend and brother. You are and always will be an inspiration to me. I am sure you are with our Lord Jesus now giving Him a full ear! Love you my brother and will see you again one day, peace be with you! Mark”

“Epitaph (Merrit Malloy) When I die, give what’s left of me away To children and old men that wait to die. And if you need to cry, cry for your brother or sister who walk the street beside you. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone and give them what you need to give to me. I want to leave you something, something better than words or sounds. Look for me in the people I’ve known or loved. And if you cannot give me away, At least let me live on in your eyes and not your mind. You can love me most by letting hands touch hands. By letting bodies touch bodies and by letting go of children that need to be free. Love doesn’t die, people do. So when all that’s left of me is love, Give me away.”

“This man, until his decline with his health issues was one of the hardest working people I knew, lived with more than half my life. He put all his efforts into everything he did. Never wanted to finish less than first on anything he attempted. Helped his children care for his beloved grandchildren, extended family, and friends until he was ready to go home to our mother and all he loved . Also to those who preceded him in death. I Love You My Dear Brother Don. I will also miss you until we meet again!”
