Dear Jeremy and Joshua, please accept my deepest sympathies. Your mom, dad and I were roommates and good friends. Met your mom in the Soo and your dad in Toronto, the latter location being where we shared an apartment. Another friend Lori rounded out the group. We had lots of fun with our children - all boys who were but a few years apart oldest to youngest. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family.

I was extremely sad to hear of Donna's passing. Thank you, Jeremy for calling me. I hadn't seen your Mom for a while but did think of her on occasion and intended to call. One should never procrastinate.

She led an exciting life, often doing what she wanted in her own way, on her terms, without regret.

I have memories of time spent with her at camp and in town. She was a good person, doing her best to help others.

I am sorry I cannot attend the service. My mother is having health issues and I cannot leave. My thoughts are and will be with you. There are no words one can say to alleviate your sorrow. Time passes and one day you will laugh at memories and thoroughly enjoy the thoughts. She will always be with you all.

For all of those that know and for the ones that don't - Donna was my biological mother. I met her 11 years ago and told her how fortunate I was to have met her and my brothers. I will miss her more than anyone will know! May she rest in peace knowing that I truly cared for her! Love to Josh and Jeremy and the rest of the family
