My sympathy goes out to Dana’s family. My son Kevin and I became friends with her while she was working for Dr Friedlander. She was such a warm and caring person. She and my son were nearly the same age and they had a lot in common. He passed at age 52. God’s blessings be with you as you face the days ahead.

To Donnie and Darlene, My condolences to you both and your families. We should feel at ease knowing she is no longer suffering or in pain. That she has moved on to a better life. A better life where she can be the Mom that she always wanted to be, with her son beside her now.

Dana was a friendly young lady who always was willing to talk with. She always asked about Uncle Donnie. She will be greatly missed. We were glad to have the opportunity to get to know her.
