Together on life’s journey we have traveled...you and me sharing all the joys of life keeping each other company even if it was just on the phone sharing lots of happy times and sometimes sharing tears.
Always leaning on each other together through the years.
No matter where life leads us dear sister, know it is time.
It has been a joy to travel down the road of life with you.
When God made us sister,s, he wove the fabric of our lives together. So we share each other’s happiness and help each other grow. He made us kindred spirits and lifetime friends.
He gave us hearts that hear each other before a word is spoken and arms that hold each other through all of life’s ups and downs.
When God made us sisters, he wove the fabric of our lives together.
And as we watch the years go by we will know beyond a shadow of a doubt, the gift of a special sister is a treasure beyond compare.
I will hear you and love you from here and beyond.
Love your little sis forever.

I was so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. I was a classmate of Fred and Donna at Harrah high school I have known them for many years and have always thought they made a beautiful couple. I am so sorry for her family, as I know that this is a very grievous loss as Donna must have always been a bright spot in their family. My heart goes out to Fred now as he must travel down this lonesome road, I pray that he may find healing for such a trip. Please note that both Fred and the rest of his family shall be in my prayers that they may find peace in this time of sorrow Gary DeGroot.

Aunt Donna was always such a delight and a comforter when we would talk. She always made me laugh and was always there if I needed someone to listen. I am praying for peace and comfort for the family through this difficult time. I'm sorry I can't be there to say my final goodbyes but I will be there is spirit.
Love you bunches!!

Donna always seemed to me as another Mother she was always so sweet and I remember coming home with Kay and she would always have some kind of snack for us. My favorite were her fresh fried pies they were so good.
She was also a partner in crime because she and Kay would come pick me up at the football game so I could get out of the pep club. Kay and I would hang out and they would take me back so my Mom could pick me up and she didn’t know what we had done.
I have so many wonderful memories of both Donna and Fred, as I spent a lot of time spending the nights and coming there after school
Donna, I love you and say hi to my Mom when you see her
