I'm so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. I thought very highly of her,largely because of how kind she was to my dad and how sweet and friendly she was. When she would go out for her walks, before she got so sick, she would stop a dvisit with dadfor a bit and it always so brightened his day, as he didn't get out a lot. Remember a few"tales" my cousin Phyllis told on the two of them when they were in school too. RIP Donna,say hello to our loved ones in heaven.
