You will be missed dearly, Miss Donna. It wasn’t a wrestling show in Kentuckiana unless you were in the building. Can’t imagine the shows you’re seeing now.

Donna you were one of the true, great wrestling fans in the world of fandom. But you were more than a fan. You were a friend. I want to thank you for the countless times that you caused me to break character and the many times that you made me smile or gave me a hug when I was down for whatever reason. I salute you with a big 10 count. Fly high babygirl.
