I was very saddened to hear about Ladonna. I spent some time with her in the Conway Rehab. She was a friend. We both had our knees replaced. She was a sweet woman who loved God.

Ladonna was a perfect example of a Christian. She was continually helping someone by writing notes, sending cards, taking food, checking on someone who was sick, or whatever she knew of to help someone. Her family, friends and church will miss her kind and giving spirit.
