Donna and I became friends in the early 1970's and remained friends up until her passing. I have so many fond memories of Donna it would be hard to name just one. A funny memory is when we would go to breakfast at Denny's about the same time the bars were closing. We would watch the drunken people come in and the funny things they did. We got a lot of laughs and entertainment watching their antics. Donna would order a glass of milk with her breakfast which became a big joke between us. She would get her food but never get her milk until she reminded the waitress that she needs it to be able to sleep that night!! Donna was a one of a kind beautiful person and if you were lucky enough to be considered one of her close friends she would give you anything you needed that she had, even the shirt off her back. Her daughter and all of her grandchildren and great grands as well make up her life. Donna is going to be immensely missed by all her family and friends. Rest in Peace Donna until we meet again.
