I am so sorry about your loss. I was just sitting here listening to Another Chance and Smokey Bear -
My Trooper man remembering my Gramma. (She used to play them for me) Then, I decided to Google Donna because when I was a kid I remember her and Shot coming to my Grandmothers house in Eldersville, Pa. They were jamming in my Uncle Tuck's and Aunt ValJean's garage. We're related somehow. My Aunt was named after her. Her name was Donna Darlene Woods. I was hoping to reach out, but, unfortunately the first thing that popped up was the Obituary page. My prayers are with all the friends and family.

Suzette, so sorry for your loss, she was so pretty and you took after her I can see. I never met her, but from all the post here I can tell she was a loved person for sure.

I have been Donna's hairstylist for over ten years. She was a special person and always kind, and caring to me. I only met a few of her family members, but I feel like I know all of them well. She shared a lot of stories of her music travels and all the wonderful people she met along the way. I will miss her smile. Sorry for your loss.
