    We are so very sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. She was in our prayers from the day we heard of the diagnosis and she remains in our prayers. Though we didn’t have nearly enough time with her, she was clearly a wonderful person with a great deal of integrity and such a youthful and fun personality. She brought so much joy to my father, Gary, and we all shall miss her dearly. We will keep your family in our prayers during this time of loss.
