Donna was an amazing woman and a fantastic grandma to us and our children. Every Halloween after trick/treating our tradition was to go over to Gramma Donna’s and Papa Ron’s to sort candy and have a “light” dinner, which was always a spread fit for a king. I think it is one of my children’s favorite traditions, hands down. When Lilly went to college, she cried that first Halloween because she had to miss it. We have many, many fond memories of Donna. She was loved by us deeply and will be missed.
