My deepest sympathies on the passing of your mom. I remember her lovely down east accent and that she was a very sweet lady. Don Johnston called me today to pass along this sad news. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Dear Jerry and Family,

Please accept my deepest Sympathy on your loss of Donna. I didn't know her for long but her laughter and the way her eyes lit up everytime that Myrna would come in and speak to her spoke volumes of Donna's warmth and kindness.
My prayers are with you.

I would first like to say how grateful I am to have been a part of Donna's care for 7 years. There are many memories but what really got me laughing was her poking fun at Jerry or anyone around her. You never knew what she was going to say, but Jerry and I had a few gutt bursting laughs from her comments 🤣🤣🤣 Another thing I cherish are the moments when she would show comcern for others, asking if we were ok. If there is such a thing as a living angel, Donna certainly was. She had a heart of gold and I will miss her. A beautiful ❤❤❤ soul.

So many of my favourite childhood memories include Aunt Donna and trips down east with her, Uncle Jerry, Chris and Debbie. I loved her laugh and sense of humour. I can hear her saying “my lands or you little stinker” and it brings a smile and a tear at the same time. I will always have a special place in my heart for Aunt Donna.
Thank you so much Uncle Jerry and Deb for all you have done to care for her. Sending much love and prayers.
