She and my Auntie CORRIE Lee Williams were room mates, almost two years ago, the sweeties lady ! When you get there we’d talk the whole while she always gave us an up date on Auntie 🤗 she made sure my sister Patricia and I got to meet Donna a sweet lady too, I wanted to go visit her many times, but I just couldn’t go back in that room after my Auntie passed. We made sure she was tucked in bed curtains pulled bathroom door shut, and would after keep her TV . on Family Feud before we left, she always Thanked us, but we loved doing it ,Missing her now.😢 R.I.H
