I can remember you and me growing up in our neighborhood Green Bay Meadows. How we played until the street lights turned on. We then went to high school together and we would laugh and talk forever. When I became manager I hired you at my store and we had the best working environment. I am gonna miss you sweet childhood friend. We have been through a lot together. I know your dancing and rejocing in heaven with everyone. I know your pain is gone dear friend . I will miss you dearly my sweet Donna.
