I have many fond memories of Donna when Larry and I went to church at Hilyer. I worked with her with the Cubbies in Awana's. We had some good times with the kids. She had so much energy and enthusiasm, loved working with kids and the kids all loved her. She always had a smile on her face, anything that needed to be done, she was always onboard. We were in WMU together. She will certainly be missed by so many, especially her family and her church family. When we moved back to ARK she gave me several items that I think of her each time I look at them and will always cherish. She was a great friend and she loved her Lord and Savior. I have comfort knowing that she is with Him now in Heaven and look forward to seeing her again there. May GOD comfort and bless all her family. We miss y'all and love each of you. Love, Gail & Larry

Some hearts are cautious. They are shy, and still, and speak in whispers. Some are bold and bright and call out to others fearlessly. Donna had a heart like that, a heart that was unafraid.

I met Donna in my first year of teaching. I was mid-degree, mid-divorce, with a toddler and a baby and I was just handed a classroom in chaos. I spent a lot of time lost that year, flailing about and just getting by. Donna was there, always, with constant support and the occasional firm dose of reality.

Her heart was there for me from the beginning. She guided me, taught me, scolded me when I needed it. I wouldn't let her love me yet, but she did anyway. You just couldn't argue with her and you certainly weren't gonna win.

The next year, I moved from math to science. I was on Donna's hall and I still looked to her as my mentor. Again, she lead the way for me and taught by example...and the occasional scolding. Even when she told me things I didn't want to hear, I had faith she was always seeking what was best for me and others. That year, I let her love me and I thought I might be safe to love her, too.

For the next two years our friendship blossomed. She was more than a mentor, she was my school mom. A fellow teacher that always had my back but would also keep me in check when I needed it. Like with all good moms, I moved from dependence on her to standing on my own. We became equals, confidantes, coconspirators.

At some point, I knew I had to make a decision though. Was loving Donna worth the pain of eventually losing her? See, I had walked this very same path before with my dad. I knew this day was coming and I prayed it away with all my heart, but here I am again. I will tell you, the pain is great, but the beauty of loving is that it is always worth it.

I love you, Donna. You touched my life and changed my heart. May I honor your memory with a ice cold Coca-Cola, a trip through the Magic Tunnel, and a heart that is no longer so afraid.
