    I am sure going to miss you Donna. I don’t get out of the kitchen much but whenever I did, I always stopped in to say hello. Donna was always friendly and so easy to talk to. She always had a smile on her face. She listened, and she had amazing stories to share. Rest easy Donna. Godspeed.

    Words cannot describe the love & kindness Donna had in her heart, She was one of my first residents at altercare. From making jokes in the middle of night, to the sweet nicknames she would call you, to always making sure you took care of yourself, her love was immeasurable. Mama Donna was one of a kind, and she’s the type of person you meet & realize you’re never gonna meet another like her. I’m beyond glad, I was able to not only care for her but was able to feel the extent of her tenderness and care. Thank you for teaching me patience, and making me see how much kindness the world can bring. Rest sweetly. My condolences to family & friends, she will truly be missed by so many.
