My sympathies to Donna Beard's family. I lived in Leisure Acres in the same building with her. Mike and I were saddened by the news of her passing.
Very sorry at your loss.

Dale and Family, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I read the article about her and your Dad, I think she would have fit in with us at June Bugs. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
