Donna and I used to have fun and memorable "marathon" phone conversations. She was vibrant and authentic. She was a spunky little spitfire. I never knew what she'd say next to make me laugh. She had a great sense of humor, good-natured, and an all-around amazing person. I'm grateful to have known her and will treasure and carry with me the fond memories I have of her. Much love and man many prayers for comfort and peace to the the whole family.

I'm saddened to hear the news about Donna. Although I had not seen her in years I will remember how nice she was to me anytime I visited her house. Thoughts and prayers go out to Gary, Jacob and the rest of the family
