Dear Mike - On behalf of Lucky, myself and the entire Jordan Family, I would like to send my deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of Donna. May you and yours be at peace and always remember the times that you all had together. I always fall back on my old saying " there are two kinds of people in East Hartford - those who lived in the village and those who wished that they did".

Dear Mike, Michelle, Michael and family, I am so very saddened to learn of Donna's passing. She was a sweet, gentle and kind woman who I was blessed to know. We met a few times for ice cream at the Dairy Queen before our meeting, and I always enjoyed our time together. May God give you strength during this time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I will miss her. Love, Marsha
