Family and friends remember Donnie Allison

Friends and family packed into the Trinity Church Saturday to remember the life of Lubbock entertainer Donnie Allison. At 49, he lost his battle with cancer earlier this week. A memorial service Saturday afternoon was full of prayer, stories, and music.

More than 100 people packed Trinity Church to celebrate Allison's life. Those there celebrated his success in life through a tribute video called Donnie Allison's Concert of a Lifetime.

Friends say Lubbock lost a great entertainer and a great friend. "I knew Donnie when he first started playing. I was part of the group supporting him. He will be missed," said Doug Heisterkamp, who wanted to be a part of the tribute to Allison.

"I can't think about Donnie not smiling. He brought joy to all people he was around on the stage, in life he was a man who looked for joy in his life and found it," said Don Caldwell.
