My thoughts and prayers are with the family, I took care of Donna years ago on rehab, she was very sweet to me and actually would let me get her in the shower when she wouldn’t let anyone else, we had a special bond, she asked me frequently if I had a husband she said I should share my happiness with someone ,,, She will be missed dearly
