This story is about my brother Donald Rineer Jr. "Duke", "Fatboy", "Rhino" and many other nicknames that friends and family have for him. He is a one of a kind individual... Not much common sense but very intelligent! He played sports in school, graphic arts at vo-tech. He loves food, but most of all music was his passion! He's had his share of garage bands growing up but could be by himself for hours just playing one of his many guitars! Most of all to me, just my "Big Brother" defended me, looked out for me, and taught me things... Always corrected my spelling, always tried to keep me from looking like an idiot! His brain worked that way! Right now his big brain is having trouble working... He had a massive heart problem and was flatlined for 26 minutes! Knowing what I know now... That's an incredibly long time to not get oxygen to his big brain! We need all the prayers and support we can get to try to get him out of this... I need him more now than ever! Thank you to everyone that has him in their thoughts and prayers! Life is way too short... Hug and LOVE everyone that is important in your life... Trust me!
