Donna was a wonderful person just like her husband Alex. I met them a few years ago and did some work for them. They made me feel like a long time friend from the beginning. It pained me to hear of Alex passing and now I have great sorrow from Donna's passing. May they both rest in peace and I know they are together in heaven. God bless these wonderful individuals.
