We are saddened to loose the very best neighbor ever, but we can rejoice in the knowledge that she is in Heaven forever. She was a wonderful example of love and acceptance of all people, but especially her family. It was lovely of her to take us under wing and make us and our kids and our grandchildren part of her heart. That was Donna! We will miss her.
