Donna was always such a sweet, kind, person. I always enjoyed visiting with her. I appreciated the way she was always so good to my son. And she really raised some great kids.

My sweet friend.... so many memories of our times together: working together, the hours of scrapbooking, the trips, the hundreds of jigsaw puzzles we worked. My favorite will always be the smiles, the hugs and you saying "Linda, I love you like a sister". Rest in peace, Donna. You are loved by many and will remain in our hearts.

I have so many great memories with Donna and her family, we were great friends back in the 60's along with Carla, Carol, the walthalls and Billy. My heart is broken. I won't be able to come due to having surgery on my foot but to the family y'all are in my heart and prayers and that God will give y'all strength. Fly high my sweet friend and ride Beauty and Betty. I love you all.
