We grew up on welfare – a single mom with three boys. Christmas would come around, she'd rewrap gifts she'd given us before. When you come home from school and the lights don't go on, you think: we're moving! While attending university, Donovan was a commercial bus driver at UMass Transit Service, where he operated passenger buses as part of the PVTA.
As the two have a perfect chemistry with one another, there is no chance of them going to get a divorce.
