I don’t remember if I ever met Donna in person. I was friends with her brother Dale who spoke so highly of his sister. My deepest sympathy to Dale and his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I worked with Donna for many years. She was a great person with a wonderful personality. I became especially close to her and your Mom when Sylvia was facing cancer. Donna always had a smile and warm welcome for anyone she met. She left us too early and will leave a void in many lives. Please accept my sympathy for your loss. I will be praying for and thinking of you on Saturday.
Donna was a very good person. We lived across the street from one another for many years. I was not aware of her re-occurrence of her illness. She was a great person with a wonderful personality. I was sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. I am unable to come to her burial mass, but my thoughts and prayers will be there.
Donna was a great friend and honored me by being one of my bridesmaids more than 40 yrs ago. I always enjoyed our times together and though they became less frequent as time went by, our conversations were always easy. Donna had a great sense of humor and a big heart. She will be missed deeply.
