Paul I want you to know I’m here if you need anything my and Ed’s number are the same. It’s coming on a year and every time I think of Donna I have tears roll down my cheeks, Donna was such a simple loving woman with the biggest heart. And a sense of humour, she always found good in everyone no matter what you said or did. Only the good die young Donna had done so much good her time was up. If it weren’t for Donna I wouldn’t be Mrs Faber thank you Donna

I will always remember Donna as a woman who spent every day of her life giving to others before looking after her herself. She had a warm smile and memorable laugh. I lived with my dad and her for close to a year and she always made me feel like I was one of her own. I used to make it my goal to make her laugh whenever I could because I loved hearing it and I loved seeing her so happy. I would leave for weeks or months at a time and when I came back to the house, found that it felt as though I had never left. She just had that welcoming presence and I will always miss that.

Dad, I hope you find comfort in knowing that she was always there for you and that she will continue to be in ways that you can't foresee...have faith in knowing that her soul is at peace.

I would like to pass my condolences to my cousin Donna’s family.
I haven’t seen Donna for a long time, as I moved away from Oshawa 35 years ago. I do have many good childhood memories of going down the street to Aunt Glenna’s to play with Susan and Donna.
May you find comfort in the good memories you have of her. My heart goes out to all of you at this sad time.
Cousin Rene xoxo

My deepest condolences to Paul and Donna's family. I loved Donna as if she were my own sister. Donna was warm, kind, loving, caring, and thoughtful. When I close my eyes, I can see Donna's smile and hear her contagious laugh. I was always welcomed into Paul and Donna's home whether to celebrate a birthday, a holiday, a special occasion, or simply to talk and enjoy each other's company on the spur of the moment. She signed the cards she gave me as "Dawn". Donna and I laughed often because we had bought the same clothes although we had not gone shopping together. I miss her. Donna was a very good friend. I loved her. And she will always have a special place in my heart.

I remember Donna more as a pre-teen. She was always independent and knew what she wanted. Her parents loved her dearly, as did her sister. My condolences to all her family. Debbie Brewer
