Like so many others, I have nothing but nice things to say about Donna. She had a truly kind and gentle soul. I feel lucky to have gotten to know her while we worked together. She always listened, gave great advice, and was a helpful and patient teacher. More than anything, Donna loved her family, and it was a treat to hear her talk about them. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones.

David, we are so saddened by hearing of Donna's passing. We knew her best when we were all young and we very well remember how much fun we all had with each other. She was one of Betty's best friends and we are both taken back by her passing. Where has the time gone that we couldn't still know each other in our old age. We are thinking of you and Donna at this very difficult time and know that we loved Donna so much, she was one a the nicest and kindest people we have ever known. She will be missed.
