  1. Dear Auntie,

    We will miss you….. but we know you are in a better place. I know we didn’t get to see you that often, you were our long distance Auntie Donna. When we did see you, you made it as if no time had passed at all! You have that special gift, thank you for the memories! We love you and I know, we will see you again…..

    Mrs. C, You were an angel walking amongst swag. If given the opportunity, I would have you be my Mom. I had told people that the greatest thing about being without parents is that I never would have to feel the pain of loss such as this. I was wrong. You redefine strength, charity, integrity and most of all, love. I miss you. Bill

    I worked with Donna for 23 years. She was such a great bus driver. All her parents knew her personally and called her. She would always help every one else. She always talked about her 4 boys and how she loved them and loved being their mom. She was the proudest mom I ever met. I think of her often.

  4. Auntie Donna,
    I remember your fun, exciting stories and your bright smile. You were always happy and enjoyed being around family & friends. I wish I could have seen you more often, you will always hold a special place in my heart. You are with the Father now and we will see you again, I know. Love You very much….
