    I was blessed with the best aunts and uncles that a nephew could ever want, and Aunt Donna was surely one of my favorites. I have many fond memories of her, and will forever cherish those memories in my heart. She was a great lady and helped raise a great family. My thoughts are with my cousins, Steve and Sandy, Denise and Ray, and Lynda, as well as all the Jones Family. Rest in peace, Aunt Donna……I love you!
