I just found out a couple of days ago about my beautiful cousin Donna. I am totally saddened by the loss. Although, we have not seen each other much through these past years, I thought about her from time to time. I will miss her dearly. I am so sorry for your loss. You lost a wonderful, loving, and caring person. Well, you haven't really lost her, she will always remain in your hearts forever, and mine too, of course. I hope to see you soon in September to share in the many great memories we have shared. Love you all, Mark

Dear Family, I am so sorry to know of Donna's passing.
As I look at the picture you've placed on this guest book. I am saddened to know I will never see her again.
She is...was a dear cousin.

Ladies, my second cousins and your children, I am sorry we never had that dinner we spoke of at Uncle Ken's funeral.
I'm hoping to see you at the dinner in September.

God Bless you and keep you all in His loving arms.

Thankyou for all the special memories you have given to me. You became my friend, my beautiful mother-in-law, but it was more, you took me into you family and treated me like your daughter, you were my "mom" to. I will cherish dearly all those beautiful times we spent together. You taught me to live life to its fullest, just like you did. We couldn't take our last special walk together, so i hope that the last walk you took from us, was to all those beautiful Angels, just like you. Our journey together has ended, but someday i will see you again, and when i do, and you hear "hey Sexy", you will know who it is. Your new journey you have taken is as beautiful as you. You will Be MIssed, but you will always be in my Heart and Thoughts. I LOVE YOU!
