Although I haven’t seen LaDonna for years, she was one of the best friends in my life and I have always thought of her often. Oh the memories. One memory that we always looked back at and laughed and said ‘those were the good old days’ is when I ran Statlink reports and the output was huge stacks of paper that needed assembled so I always got a conference room and she would help me assemble these. We worked our butts off and when done, we stayed in the room and started working out, dancing, doing ‘slimnastics’ that we learned at the YWCA, and just had goofy fun. Oh and her pool table when she lived on 3rd street. Such fun times!
Please know that my prayers are with you. May you find the strength for healing thru this time. God gained another Angel!
