My sincere sympathies to Brian and family. Your mom was a wonderful person. I have many good memories. She had a great sense of humor. I'll share one story...many years ago Donna wanted to go shopping when the stores started staying open 24 hours for Christmas shopping. We went around midnight, we spent a long time filling our cart, then she decided she really didn't want the things and we methodically put everything back. Our only purchase that night- breakfast at the pancake House in Waterford at 3:00 a.m. Rest in peace Donna
