I have known Donna for what seems like a very short time, seven years. She became a dear friend and neighbor.
She never said NO when asked to do something for our neighbors.
She cared about our community and watched out for everything that was going on.
We will all miss her terribly.
God Bless You Donna and please keep watching out for us.

Ron and were saddened to read that Donna had passed away. We had some fun times together when Lou was alive. I will always remember Donna's laugh.
