Aunt Donna,
Some of my dearest memories from my childhood are with my Auntie Donna and Franny in your home or on rides all around New City. From trips to get Dunkin Donuts or rolls from rockland bakery to sleepovers in your room which included Hair Braiding and Seeing how many rubber bands I could put in your hair and you laughing at how crazy I made you look or Franny singing for us in your living room.
I loved being at your home so much as a little girl I cried and wanted to live with franny forever, my mother and franny fought over who I loved more you took me aside and whispered in my ear and told me to go whisper in each of their ears that I loved the other one more so they both would think that I love them more.
Your memory is implanted in the hearts of everyone you have ever crossed paths with, the memories you made for all of us will forever be cherished and forever missed.

“Our time together was short but we did have a lot of laughs. You welcomed us into your family and always made us feel special. I am sure Pat is with you and the two of you will be our guiding angels. Thank you Donna for being the strength and wind beneath Franny’s wings. I will always be there for her. Rest In Peace my friend. ❤️🙏🏻😇”
