Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Dunnavan Family. May you find peace and some level of comfort at this difficult time. Sister Dunnavan was so delightful to be around. She was definitely a ray of sunshine and so very optimistic. She always made us feel special when we came into town and visited with her. What a great example of patience, kindness, and love, she was. We know she is enjoying her reunion with her sweetheart Doc and other family members.

I just wanted to offer my deepest sympathies to your family. Doc and Donna were the most amazing people I had ever met in my life... It comforts me to know they are together again... so many wonderful memories of our trips to Rockford... as Doc would say... here come those Haw...Haw...Haw... Hawkeyes!... Donna always made us feel so welcomed... I appreciated how they always made Sheila such a special part of their lives. On behalf of Adam, Alex, and Sara... we all loved Doc and Donna so much (and yes, the rest of you too!) they will always hold a special place in our hearts. I'm so glad Sheila could attend ... Donna was like a mother to her and that shows what a loving, caring, and wonderful person she was her entire life... God Bless all your families and cherish all the wonderful memories that Doc and Donna created for all of you.
