Donna was the first and best memory we have when we were looking for a home on Westchase Circle. She and her friends and family were out in her front yard. I parked in front of her house and walked up to her and asked her if the noise from the nearby airport bothered her. She laughed the best laugh! She was so friendly and encouraged us to move into our house on Westchase. I’ll never forget all the laughter, good times, and thoughtful and loving things that come to mind when I think of Donna. We weren’t able to come today but offer our sincere condolences and are deeply sorry for your loss. Donna is a light that will always shine in our hearts and the hearts of others. She gave so much of herself and offered joy when none existed in many cases. With heartfelt sympathy, Mitch and Carol

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your wife and mom. She brightened up every room she entered. I love the pictures you chose, they show her heart, her playfulness and her love of her family. Just wanted you to know i was thinking of you, especially since i will be unable to attend her celebration.
I will miss her.

Loved my sister, Donna. She was so special, such a cute child, chunky, long dark blond hair, a little shorty, so so cute. She was always amusing and laughing and entertaining everyone. We've really got a bang out of her. She did so much for us and for others and this I am proud.

From the moment I met Donna and she sat in my chair at the salon, I loved her. She was sweet, kind, funny and loved her family.
She especially loved telling me stories about her grandsons who affectionately called her "honey". I always enjoyed and looked forward to our appointments as she was just so fun to be with. Even thru the cancer she was a delight. I will always cherish our talks and visits. May the Lord comfort you all and wrap His arms around you during this difficult time.
Much love and prayers,
Linda May
