I didn't know Donna very long, but we were both laughing within the first 10 minutes of meeting. We had good days and great days with only one bad day. She helped everybody a lot and she always always gave good advice. I took this picture at work one day for no reason at all just goofin around, but now I am so glad I did. I want to share it with her family and to also let them know that Miss Donna will be greatly missed Lisa Carter
