Danna, so much I cannot understand and words just cant say what i feel. I may not be able to physically hold you, but I can and will always hold you in my heart. I see and feel you in so many ways, especially when I look at the evening star shinning so bright and beautiful and find myself talking to you and remembering our life, you were always game to try anything and of course I went along with it, from riding an elephant or camel, to more other things that only me and you know about! I cant hug and kiss you as I always did each time we left each other, but I can still and always will say, "love ya, see you later" Brenda

Today we placed you in God's loving care. He gave you to us 35 years ago and we realize that as much as we love and miss you, he needed you to come home. The joy, love and fun you gave to us will always be treasured. You were always the most natural child ever. We will do our best to make sure your babies are loved and taken care of and we will definitely tell them all about you as they grow. Your daddy and I do not have the words to tell you how very much we loved and cherished you. We are sending you to God with hugs, kisses, and blessings. I know if Kaili and Kooga could type they would say, "Thank you for being the best mama ever and making sure we were loved." Rest in God's perfect peace and love knowing you will never be forgotten. Love from your babies and your mama and daddy.

I miss you every single day. I miss our talks about everyday things, your nursing advice, and simply just hearing your voice. I will always cherish the last time we went out and danced the night away. I love you very much and will never forget your loving smile. I can't wait until we can be together again.

Love always,

Danna started her life with us as a blessing and along the way she was a loving child, beautiful young woman, loving mother, highly skilled compassionate nurse,true friend to many, and most of all to me and Robert, one of the three monkies she loved to hear about. Danna, you started this life as a blessing and your life was ended with you being a blessing to everyone you came in contact with. Thank you Danna for being my niece and loving me and Robert because we will always love you.
Brenda and Robert

To say I'm deeply saddened by Danna's passing is an understatement. I remember her as a good friend to our daughter from elementary school clear through high school. She always had a smile on her face. Everyone liked Danna, young and old alike. The world will miss Danna Rae. To Fonda, Delmar and the rest of Danna's family members, please accept my condolences

I was shocked when i heard the news today! She was always so kind to me and would think of me at the holidays being alone and would envite me to spend it with her family. My heart is bleeding for all the family and i pray they will heal through this pain...........judy hilton
