Dear Craig, I cannot tell you how sad Fred and I were to hear of Donna's passing but to know that she is with the Lord now in all of her glory makes us happy. We will always remember you both arriving at our house and you carrying Donna with a big smile o your face. No man did it better than you. You were both so in love and always will be. Some people never get that chance. You made Fred and I so happy just to be here and keep a smile on our faces after you left. You will always be in our hearts. When you come back to Staten Island please pay us a visit. May God bless you as you have blessed others and may His constant love keep you strong and at peace.
With all our love, Freddy and Alma Bisci

Dear Craig, my condolences to you. So sorry to hear of Donna's passing. She was a very special woman. Always smiling and loving life through the Lord and with all the unconditional love that you had for her. I always admired both of you. You both opened your home to all of us to learn more about Jesus and to come together in His name. I will always remember the two of you for your kindness and hospitality. I pray for you that you find peace with Donna going home to the Lord. She will do wonders in heaven just as she has done here on Earth.

Dear Craig,
I went to school with Donna, so you don't know me. I am so saddened by this and pray for God to comfort you all in this big loss. Donna and I met again years after H.S. you and Donna were renting an apartment to my brother Anthony and Liz Gigliotti. That's when Donna and I met and to both of our surprise found out we were both following our Lord and Savior, Jesus! I often wondered how Donna was doing...now I know she is dancing before her Lord and praising his holy name! Will be praying for you and your family.
Lisa Gigliotti, Cassarino

Dear Craig: Such a sad and helpless feeling this morning when I heard of Donna's passing. The only thing that takes away the pain is knowing that her now whole body is walking alongside her Heavenly Father daily.your love for her and fortitude in caring for her were a blessing and privilege for all who knew the two of you.... Your brother in Christ, Robin

My dear friend Donna, you were an absolute pillar of strength. I see in you faith bigger than I can ever hope to attain. I am confident that any one who met you left your presence humbled yet encouraged.

I am sad that the last decade found us in different continents, an ocean between us. Thank you for visiting me twice in Israel. My favorite memories though are of us spending the night at your Staten Island home. We solved" the world's problems and we strove together to understand God and his mysterious ways. We believed fiercely, but our understanding didn't match our beliefs. Nevertheless, you never wavered in your faith, no matter what life threw your way.

This season my kids sit around the TV every night before bed to watch the Little Drummer Boy. (I'm so thankful all of them met you this summer, by the way!). Near the end of the movie a Wise King encourages the drummer boy to go to Jesus - a little baby - for his answers. The boy doesn't understand, but the king tells him, It is not necessary for you to understand. Just go to him.

Donna, that is what you did. You went to him in life. You brought others to him. And you went to him now.

You always said you wanted to run and dance. I believe that now you are doing both, and even more. I look forward to seeing you again my friend in a place where all tears and all suffering are wiped away. Enjoy yourself.

Love you! Your friend, Nicole
