I am so thankful to have had Donna as my Mother in Law. She was not only my Mother in Law but a wonderful friend to me. She was always so encouraging and willing to help me with anything and everything I might need. I am thankful for the son she raised and the family she welcomed me into. I love you Mamaw and can’t wait to see you again in Paradise ❤️

Donna was my sister-in-law and like most I'm still in shock that she is gone. She was a wonderful wife & friend to my brother Earl and mother to their children. I always admired Donna for the kind of wife that she was, they did everything together, play and work. Earl got lucky when he met Donna, theirs is a beautiful love story and partnership. I will surely miss her, her kind disposition and faithfulness to her family and God. May God strenghten those that are left behind until they once again meet.

Thank you for always being there for us. I will miss all of our texting and funny phone calls. You were always so positive and had the nicest thing's to say. I will never forget the last visit you had to the thrift store and you took the cat urn's to sell thinking they were pretty little vases. We laughed so hard when the lady told you what they were.😂 We can't forget about the bong you found at the rent house again thinking it was a vase. The guy behind the counter asked you ma'am do you know what this is and mom stated no. Why? Well ma'am it's a bong people smoke dope with this. Mom was shocked!! I love you with all my heart.

We have been family friends for 30+ years and enjoyed our sons being good friends and growing up together. Over the years we have traveled , camped, fished, gone boating, cooked out, and the list goes on of activities we shared with Earl and Donna. Don especially remembers officiating at Earl and Kim's wedding! Donna was a very thoughtful, kind, soft-spoken, sweet lady, never saying anything bad about anyone. She greatly enjoyed and loved her children, Dee and Earl, and especially the grandchildren, Kendra, Garrett and Tesha. I have a couple of craft items that Donna made and will cherish them even more now. Donna will be greatly missed by her husband, Earl and family and many friends. May God's amazing grace cover you with great peace and comfort as you adjust to life without sweet Donna. Rest in God's promise: Psalms 23:1 "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Much love to each of you in Christ's name. Don & Ellen Ricks
